The southern Russian city Volgograd is located on the Volga River (a largest one) which divided the city into two nearly equal parts. In spite of the fact that Volgograd enters the top ten largest cities of the country, it is unspoiled by great sports or business events. The 2018 FIFA World Cup will be the major event, and the city-on-Volga is, undoubtedly, preparing very carefully.

Hotels in the city center
The central district of Volgograd is an important business, transport and tourist cluster of the city. There are the main railway station and also historical and architectural sights devoted to the Battle of Stalingrad. It is very comfortable to live in the downtown: besides the Volga River embankment, the station and museums, the main sports construction Volgograd Arena is within walking distance. If it is uncomfortable to walk to the stadium in hot weather, one can use a high-speed tram which will bring fans from the downtown to the stadium skipping traffic jams in 15-20 minutes. The main downtown hotels:
- Hampton by Hilton Volgograd Profsoyuznaya Hotel

- Park Inn by Radisson Volgograd
- City Hotel
When choosing a hotel, first pay attention to the hotel location. Volgograd is divided by the Volga River into two parts, Volgograd Arena is located on the right river bank. We advise to choose a hotel also on the right river bank not to lose 2 or 3 hours in traffic jams on the way to the downtown and stadium. Besides, on the left bank of Volga there are practically no sights and interesting architecture. The average price in one-star of two-star hotels in Volgograd is 30-40 euros, the prices for three-star or four-star hotels begin from 300 euros.
