* Astrakhan (1558) is a major city in southern European Russia. The city lies on the left bank of the Volga River, close to where it discharges into the Caspian Sea at 23 metres below sea level. The city is situated on 11 islands. Astrakhan is sometimes called Southern Venice for its numerous canals connected with the Volga. Astrakhan may be also called the city of bridges: there are about 50 of them - they all remain the main feature of “the city on the water”. The Kremlin in Astrakhan is an outstanding monument of Russian architecture and fortification of the sixteenth century.
