Astrakhan State Medical Academy

About Astrakhan in Russia

Located on two sides of the famous Russian River Volga, Astrakhan is the largest city in the region. It is exciting because the city also includes 11 islands. The city also has the distinction of being the lowest city in Russia though the only consequence of this fact is the milder winters. The city has historical importance and is called the “southernmost outpost of Russia” and the “Caspian capital”. The climate is truly ‘continental’ and you are saved the experience of the Russian winter as the temperature here goes to only 25.50F in January.
