Volga divides the city of Tver into the left-bank and right-bank parts, and the embankments of Tver in the historic district of the city have long become a favorite vacation spot for its residents and guests. Two main Tver quays bear the names of famous people – Afanasy Nikitin and Stepan Razin. Both Tver embankments are decorated with ancient buildings, some of which are monuments of federal significance. The embankment of Stepan Razin is famous for the buildings of the XVIII century that were preserved on it, which are built so tightly to each other that they look from the Volga as a single unified façade. Such a design of residential buildings can be observed in the historical center of St. Petersburg. In parallel to the left bank of the Volga, a city embankment stretches for 2.5 km, bearing the name of the merchant and the discoverer Afanasy Nikitin. From a large list of historically important architectural monuments on the Tver waterfront, the Uspenskaya and Voskresensk churches of the early 18th century, the buildings of the former spiritual school and the Tver State Technological University were preserved. The bank of the Volga is adorned with the monument to Athanasius Nikitin. The favorite places of walks of residents and guests of the city of Tver are also boulevards, squares and parks in the historical part of the city: City Garden, Trekhsvyatskaya Street – Tverskaya Arbat Street, Ivan Krylov Street Designer Park, Radischev Boulevard with the legendary monument of Tver Shanson – Michael Krug and much more.
