On a weekend watch a bridegroom traditionally carry his bride all the way up the hill away from the monument –talk about challenges a marriage puts you through!

3. One of the most famous symbols of Togliatti – a stela shaped as an ancient boat

The same symbol as adopted for Lada cars produced locally:

Pass this towering symbol of Togliatti on your way to the local car factory AvtoVAZ producing Lada cars: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lada

 


4. Cross the street and let yourself get lost for a while in the vast space of Technical museum of AvtoVAZ (the territory of about 32 hectares –79 acres) - one of the biggest war-history museums in Russia. Tanks, guns, planes, helicopters……



…. and a submarine!
