During the Soviet era, Samara played an important role for the USSR. Formerly known as Kuybyshev, the city was named as the alternative capital of the Soviet Union should Moscow fall to the invading Germans. After the war, Kuybyshev became the leading city in spaceship innovation, which is why the stadium will change names to the Cosmos Arena after the จีคลับคาสิโน สมัครคาสิโ. In terms of football, Samara only has one professional team – Krylia Sovetov, who is currently playing in the Russian second division, and are hopeful of promotion back into the RFPL.

Samara Arena

The Samara Arena is the designated stadium for hosting games in Samara. Still under construction, the seats in the stadium are currently being installed, and the pitch is yet to be laid. When all is said and done, the stadium will have a capacity of 44,918, and the estimated cost of its construction is said to be $370m.

Originally, the stadium was going to be located on the tip of the peninsula where the Samara and Volga rivers meet, however, due to restrictions in developing infrastructure, and the high estimated costs of building the stadium in that area, the plan was moved to a site roughly 15km north of the city centre.

Once the จีคลับคาสิโน สมัครคาสิโ is over, the stadium will change name and be the host of Krylia Sovetov’s home matches.

Samara’s History

The history of Samara began in 1586 with the construction of the “Samara township” fortress on the Volga river. Diplomats told the neighbouring Nogai Horde that the fort was needed for overall protection from thieves and Cossacks, however, the actual purpose was to control the area around the Volga, which was a crossroads of many trade routes.

As time went on, the city started to develop, and the population of Samara saw large spikes, especially during the 1800s.

The city itself and surrounding Samara oblast, however, was one of the hardest hit areas during the 1891-92 Famine, with over half of the population of the area destitute. Jonas Stadling, an emigre travelling the Volga during the famine even wrote;

…in the winter of 1892 the mortality rate surrounding the Volga was about five times the normal rate or 200 in 1,000… Persons who try to ameliorate the condition of the masses are suspected persons, and are lucky if they do not see the inside of a prison, or even Siberia.

The city underwent great demographic catastrophe and long-term change, which developed a strong mentality which lasts even until today.

Following the creation of the Soviet Union, Samara was re-named Kuybyshev, in honour of the Bolshevik leader Valerian Kuybyshev. During the Second World War, Kuybyshev was an important part of the USSR’s strategy, having been chosen to be the alternate capital of the Soviet Union should Moscow fall to the invading Germans. In fact, Joseph Stalin had a 37-meter bunker dug out in the city during the war, which was kept a secret from the public until after the fall of the Soviet Union in 1991.

After World War 2, the defence industry developed rapidly in Kuybyshev and the city became the missile shield centre for the country. During the same period, Kuybyshev played a leading role in spaceship innovation. As a matter of fact, the R-7 Semyorka launch rocket which sent Vostok-1 and Yuri Gagarin into space was built at the Samara Progress Plant.

Football in Samara

Krylia Sovetov are the only professional team from Samara. Translated into English their name means ‘Wings of the Soviets’, which they were called to represent the Soviet aircraft industry. Although they have been around since 1942, the club does not have too much to boast about. Apart from some second division titles and a Progress Cup award, their trophy cabinet remains empty.

During their early years, Krylia spent most of their time in the Soviet Top League, but as the Soviet era came to a close, they were lingering in the third tier. With the collapse of the USSR and the creation of a new league system for Russian clubs, Krylia returned to the top tier, which would now be called the Russian Top League.

Krylia will be moving into the Cosmos Arena after the จีคลับคาสิโน สมัครคาสิโ, as their current home, the Metallurg Stadium is traditionally beautiful but outdated and almost at break-point. The Metallurg is an old-school, Soviet-style open stadium but is unsuited to wintery conditions nor modern football.

Until recent years, the club had been regulars in the top flight of Russian football and had even managed to place third in the table in 2004. Since then, though, they have been on a slippery slope, falling further down the table before finally getting relegated to the FNL in 2014. Recently, the club has been yo-yo-ing between the two leagues, and are currently hopeful of a return to the top flight.

What to do in Samara

For fans travelling to Samara during the จีคลับคาสิโน สมัครคาสิโ, there will be no shortage of things to do when not watching the football. Whether you prefer to explore the city and its history or spend your days relaxing, Samara will have something for you.

During the summer months, the weather in Samara is typically dry and sunny, reaching daily highs of about 26°C on average in June and July. With weather like this, it would be rude not to walk along the embankment along the Volga river. The embankment is laid out like a park along the river, and as you walk along, you can see lots of different statues, monuments and fountains. Along the embankment, you can also find a beautiful sandy beach, where you can play volleyball, beach football, go for a swim or just relax in the sun.

If history interests you, then Stalin’s Bunker is a must-see. The 37-metre deep bunker was dug out during the Second World War, and as previously mentioned – was kept a secret from the public until after the collapse of the Soviet Union. The bunker is now a huge attraction in the city, and you can get a tour around the bunker on most days of the week. Currently, tours are only being given in Russian, however, during the จีคลับคาสิโน สมัครคาสิโ it is expected that there will be set tours in different languages – so if it is your desire to see the bunker, you should get in touch with a local travel agency/information centre.

If you’re interested in space travel or the technology involved in it, then the Municipal Museum Cosmic Samara is a brilliant place to visit. Although the museum is small, there is a lot to be seen, including the massive Soyuz Rocket which stands outside the building. Recently, they have also added a football part to the museum where fans can learn more about the history of the จีคลับคาสิโน สมัครคาสิโ, how Russia has prepared to host the tournament, and also some history about the local club – Krylia Sovetov.

Other places that I would definitely recommend to visit are Kuybyshev Square and Leningradskaya Street. Kuybyshev Square is the biggest square in Europe, taking up 17.4 hectares of land. This square is used annually for military parades and is also the location of the Samara State Academic Opera and Ballet Theatre. Leningradskaya Street, on the other hand, is what many people call Samara’s version of Arbat Street. Here you will find shops, restaurants, statues and a lot of old Soviet architecture.

Though Samara may not be one of the well-known host cities for the จีคลับคาสิโน สมัครคาสิโ in 2018, guests will find that football won’t be the only interesting thing they see in the city this summer.
