Beaches at the Nizhnyaya (Low) Terrace

Beaches of the left-bank part which are situated in the parks of 40-years of VLKSM and Pribrezhny are natural. But people swim in the Volga and tan there. Moreover, from the left bank opens up a beautiful sight on the city and the Volga Bridge. In 2007 it's planned to open these beaches officially, which will promote their developing and convenience for citizens.


Beach on the Sviyaga River

For many years it's prohibited to swim in the Sviyaga. But every summer in hot weather there are many people who swim in its polluted water. Many of these swimmers are children. According to the data of the city center of sanitary-and-epidemiologic institution, water in the Sviyaga doesn't satisfy norms of bacteriological and chemical indexes. Swimming here can cause allergic reactions and enteric infections. But in spite of all prohibitions citizens swim in the Sviyaga.
