The most convenient way to get to Volgograd is to take a direct Moscow — Volgograd flight. The best money-saving option is to purchase a round-trip ticket. Flights arrive at Gumrak International Airport, which is located 13 kilometres from the city centre (flight duration: about 2 hours). Please note that the best airfares to Volgograd usually sell out quickly, so we strongly recommend booking tickets in advance.
The history of the city of Volgograd is inseparably intertwined with the great battle that turned the tide of Second World War. As such, the main sites relate, in one way or another, to these historic events. Don’t miss the chance to take a cruise by river boat across Volga or take a walk along the waterfront promenade, especially since the Central Promenade was renovated for the 2018 FIFA World Cup.
