Nice relaxing environment with cafes / restaurants on the Embankment itself and across the road from it. But it was a very hot day and humid (middle of summer), with the sun right in front of you in the afternoon. So be prepared!

Nice city with wonderful people. Pleasant walk along the promenade. Touching water of Volga was another tick mark on my ToDo bucket list

Great to walk along, listen to music being played, get down onto the sand(very hot) and jump in the Volga for a swim(very cool). Clean water, no bugs(like Volgograd). Great place to chill out 🇦🇺
