Stone Beach

The stone beach of Ulyanovsk stretches out for many kilometers over the bridge along the right bank of the Volga. Steep slope to the Volga leads from the north part of the city and begins on the very top of the slope. On the slope are deserted gardens and summer houses. The stone embankment is made of concrete slabs, laid on the angle to water. On the edge runs an asphalted road for cars and pedestrians, there are set lanterns, and there is electric lighting.
