Taxi

You'll find taxis in the major cities along the Volga, but you should remember to agree on the price with the driver before going anywhere.

Other transport

The most obvious way of travelling between the different cities in the Volga region is on the Volga River itself. Steamships operate daily between the major cities during the summer, but it's difficult to reserve a place in advance.
