Zhiguli Brewery information
This unlikely highlight of Samara is best enjoyed on a warm day. Here you can take your plastic bottle out of the rucksack and fill it up at the kiosk that sells the amber gold from the tap. Rows of stalls sell smoked and salted fish, all which can be enjoyed on the Volga bank, followed by a stroll along the embankment into the centre. Most marshrutky going east from Leningradskaya ul along ul Kuybysheva stop here. Check and ask the driver to stop at Pivzavod.
