The setting of some of the bloodiest battles of World War II, the vast city of Volgograd sits on the banks of the Volga River in the southern section of the country. Known as Stalingrad during the Soviet era, the metropolis sprawls over 80 km (50 mi) long, housing over a million people. Founded in the 16th century in order to defend the country's volatile southern border, it soon became a key trading and transportation center. Today, Volgograd plays an important role as a major railway junction, its economy boosted by thriving shipbuilding and oil refining industries. Explore the city by using its light rail system, or take a boat tour along the Volga.
