    Well the time change certainly makes mornings interesting. Dawn is now at 3am in June, while sunset is about 10pm. I think 11pm-4am makes much more sense for the dark hours.

    старый губернский город с большая история.
    много проблем в настоящем.
    но очень красивый город. прекрасный огромный пляж в центре.
    есть метро.

    я училась в Самаре. это моя Родина.
    но я кровь - полька.

    Soleil888 your photos are wonderful. I have a request: please can you take some photos of other photos, i.e. the exhibitions of photos about Samara by local photographers that are often displayed on boards erected in the park at Площад Куйбищева (I think I've misspelled that). On my last visit, a few months ago, there was one of the best collections of Great Patriotic War photos I've seen anywhere. Some years ago, the city authorities were broadminded enough to permit an exhibition of photos portraying a sadder side of Samara, destitute children in a children's home. I recommend these occasional exhibitions (which can often be viewed in spring and autumn, not just in summer) to anyone who wants a good (and free!) insight into the city's unique culture.
