Sightseeing in Tolyatti - what to see. Complete travel guide

Today, Togliatti is famous as the center of the automotive industry but it is primarily a very interesting and attractive city from a tourist point of view. Togliatti was formed in 1737. The fortress city was built under the guidance of Vasily Tatischev. The city had been called Stavropol until 1964. It should be noted that today it is unofficially called Stavropol-on-Volga.
The city became a popular resort in the late 19th century. It attracts the tourists with its favorable climate. The specifics of the resort were quite unusual. It was the center of the kumiss therapy. While other resorts were famous for their mineral springs and healing muds, the main value of Togliatti was truly healing kumiss. In the middle of the last century, it was decided to “transpose” the city to a new area because of the building of the Kuybyshev Reservoir. The old city was flooded completely.
Stavropol-on-Volga was named after the famous Italian communist Palmiro Togliatti. The modern city is located in a very picturesque area. It is surrounded by lush pine, oak, birch, and lime forests. The territory of Togliatti is distinguished by plenty of green plantings. The city will impress those who like walking along picturesque places. Copyright www.orangesmile.com

The Museum Complex called "Legacy” is very popular with tourists with children. It is located in the beautiful wooden building built in 1953. When the Kuybyshev Reservoir was formed, the construction was at risk of being flooded, so it was relocated. The interesting museum was opened in this old house. Here, you can see different antique pieces, such as: old irons, spinners, pieces of furniture, children’s toys, watches, and other household items. The visitors can hold most of the museum exhibits in hands, and that is why it is very popular with visitors with children.
