Young Russians Relaxing at the Beach:
Here are some friends recreating by the Volga River at Volgograd (Stalingrad), Russia during the mid 1970's. There are some beaches established along the river for people to enjoy. The beaches are mostly across the river from the city and it is common to take a ferry boat across to them. The Volga River is about one mile wide at this point. The water is always rather cold in the Volga, even during the hot summer months. Notice the small tent. We actually had several tents and spent a couple days camping, fishing, catching crayfish, lying in the sun, swimming, etc... In Russia it is popular to eat crayfish with beer.
