Founded in 1586, this region is situated in the center of the European part
of Russia where the Volga and Samara Rivers meet. Once known as
Kuybyshev or Kuibyshev , the city is approximately 800 kilometers (500 miles) southeast
of Moscow. With a regional population of over 3.3 million, Samara was closed
to foreign visitors prior to 1991.
