The following is a list of sites describing the city of Togliatti. Located in the Samara Oblast of the geographic region known as the Middle Volga, this city is 600 miles (1,000 kilometers) southeast of Moscow. Founded in 1737 as a fortress, it was known Stavropol-on Volga until 1964 (This is not to be confused with the current city of Stavropol.) The new name was in honor of Palmiro Togliatti, the leader of Italian Communists.

We hope this list will continue to grow as more communities become represented on the World Wide Web so please be sure to let us know if you are aware of any other sites.
