The Frozen Volga River:

Even as far south as Volgograd, the Volga River freezes quite solidly in the Winter. Here, my husband Dave and I, are sitting on a large slab of ice halfway across the Volga. The surface has frozen to a depth of about 2 meters (6 feet). We are about 1 kilometer from the nearest shore. The ice does not freeze smooth but rather rough as you can see. During the winter, people regularly commute across the river by foot to work or shop in the city. This is the same place the Russian defenders had to cross the frozen river with supplies during the battle of Stalingrad in WWII.
