About Volgograd

Volgograd, which was known as Stalingrad before, is an old Russian city. Volga River flows through Volgograd, which is an important industrial city. The name of the city means 'Yellow water' because of the Tsaritsa stream flowing into Volga River. The city is situated at the junction of the Volga and Don rivers. The city has become one of the major transportation points of Russia thanks to the Volga-Don channel.
