"House with a clock"
The house of merchant Andrei Frolovich Kozhevnikov. In the people - " House with a clock ."

According to legend, an 18 year old beautiful daughter died from a consumption of a merchant who lived in this house. The grieving father ordered the banging of the windows in his daughter’s room, and a clock with the carved initials of the AFK merchant was hung on the front of the house. The wooden hands of the clock froze forever, showing the hour of the girl's death. The merchant, as local historians and tour guides tell me, washed down with grief and drank soundly for a whole year, abandoning business.

Hours and initials can be seen in the middle of the house.

Fountain on the Embankment
A multi-level fountain on the embankment could be more interesting, but at least that way.

Antique clock
I love the street clock, and here is such an awesome! Victorian era straight.
Location: st. Lev Tolstoy, d. 131 (near the railway station of Samara ).

Samara Railway Station
Samara railway station is the newest, it is clear that it has been recently built. The interior is excellent, and the appearance outside is somewhat dubious and phallic.

Shawarma, barbecue paradise, tire fitting
Three in one.

Brick house
Pleasant red brick house, recently renovated. Chkalov Street, 100.

House indexes
Some hefty original mount house pointer on the right. And the pointer itself is quite a literate and visually pleasing.

 Old tram on the territory of the tram depot
The old restored first tram in Samara on the territory of the tram depot. A bore at the checkpoint did not allow me to enter the territory and take a photograph like a human being.

Amazing constructivism at the corner of Polevaya and Artsebushevskaya streets (building 175). I think the building's 70s, and the style of the 30s.

 The temple in honor of the icon of the Mother of God" The Hearing Lord "
The temple in honor of the icon of the Mother of God "Skoroproslushnitsa" (at the city clinical hospital number 1 named after NI Pirogov).

Lenin 332 / Lenin Ave, most recently was in ushatannom condition. It is a pity I did not find the history of the house, but it is clearly a junction of centuries.

Police Box
Amazingly beautiful police booth. Soon there will be a collection of such masterpieces.

Gift box in the form of nesting dolls
A souvenir stall in the form of matryoshkas is a great idea as well as a realization! Well done city authorities. By the way, there is no elemental trade in souvenirs, such as in Novgorod, in Samara.

Perhaps the coolest and most funny booth PPC in Russia.

Soviet panels
Mosaic panel of the Soviet times on the topic of working professions and space.

About an interesting window in the harsh industrial architecture :) Well, the fence is pleasant, albeit simple (Samara Hydroelectric Power Station).

Management of the Samara State Regional Power Station
Management of the Samara State Regional Power Station . Simplicity and attractive building with a bit of kitsch and overloaded facades, but who pays attention to such trifles?

Pleasant one-floor old house, st. Alexey Tolstoy, 82.

Pedestrian part of Kuybyshev street
Pedestrian part of Kuybyshev street. Attractive red house (second) - House Kalachaeva, from 1903 to 1917 - the hotel "Bristol".

General Post Office
Such a kichy Main Post Office :) With a globe on the facade!

Pedestrian Leningradskaya Street
Pedestrian Leningradskaya street.

Fountain in Leningradskaya Street
About the fountain and pigeons. Oh, and it could turn out better ...

Crossroads of Leningradskaya and Frunze streets
Crossroads of Leningradskaya and Frunze streets. Magnificent beauty and literacy lights and a huge tourist map. The building on the right is the former Hotel National (now the Azimut Hotel Samara Hotel). The truth is strongly rebuilt, in girlhood was more beautiful.

Leningradskaya street

Cinema" Youth "
Cinema "Youth" and a ridiculous police station, more like a hipster coffee shop :)

Industrial architecture
An interesting industrial architecture, now - Samara State College of Service Technology and Design .

Profitable House of the Merchant Ponomarev
Profitable house of the merchant Ponamarev, the end of the XIX century. Samarskaya Street, 67.

The arch into the courtyards is beautiful. Another would be to restore her and houses (Samarskaya Street). Something I have never met so that the street was called as the city.

Samara`s Puppet Theater

 Old house

 Old house with siding
The assholes of antiquity were sheathed with siding ... A common topic in Russia.

Eclecticism and some rethinking of the Russian revival style . Lev Tolstoy Street, 83.

 Old House
In Samara, excellent traffic lights! Compact and very noticeable even without visors + the most competent option when the countdown is inside, and not a separate module.

 Old houses
77, Lev Tolstoy Street (Former Maternity Hospital No. 1 of the city of Kuibyshev) and 79 Leninskaya Street.

Palace of Culture of Railwaymen
Palace of culture of railway workers.

Former Pushkin`s House, built in 1903 . Probably the former name served as such a ridiculous current name. Street Leo Tolstoy, 94.

 The inscription on the gate
Literate :)))

Red Cross Society Hospital
Former Red Cross Society Hospital, Lev Tolstoy Street, 136.

Management of the Kuibyshev Railway
Management of the Kuibyshev railway and station square (Komsomolskaya). The office building of the Russian Railways was built in 1925 by the project of architect P. A. Shcherbachev. And what surprised me was the late modernist style (then constructivism was already conceived and nothing was built anywhere in modern style).

And I curled up and drove on - at Ufa Samara, I visited the first of 18 cities in Russia, which dashed in August-October 2018 and the city struck me. 10 out of 10. The infrastructure is excellent, no complaints. Traffic lights, road markings, the quality of roads and sidewalks are beyond praise. The embankment is generally one of the best in Russia. Well done that saved and in the last 5-10 years brought in the divine form of antiquity.
