How was Samara called before?
The modern city of Samara in the Soviet times was called Kuibyshev on the Volga. And in the past it was Samara. Ie his real name was returned to the city. By the way, a good city, a wonderful Volga and I liked to wander along the embankment.
The city of Samara in Soviet times (from 1935 to 1991 years) was called Kuibyshev (in honor of the Soviet party leader VV Kuibyshev). This is the most famous of his "quot; previousquot; name. Until 1935, Samara was also Samara.

Впервые упоминается это место в 1357 году, когда митрополит Московский, Святой Алексий, останавливался здесь по дороге в Золотую Орду.
In 10 years, a settlement was formed here Pier, Samar.
Затем в 1586 году царь Фдор издал указ о возведении сторожевой крепости в месте слияния рек Волги и Самары для защиты от угрозы кочевников с юга. Имя она получила quot; Samara townquot;. Right to be called a city Samara fortress was in 1688 year, when it began to play a significant influence as a shopping center with the states of the East.
