Volgograd Oblast is a well-established travel destination, which means getting around is relatively easy. Make sure you to set aside sufficient time to explore the incredible range of attractions this region has to offer. Znamensk and Kapustin Yar are two other places you may wish to visit while you're in Volgograd Oblast.
When you are ready to head further afield beyond Karshevitoye, why not check out the nearest regional city. Volgograd lies 40 miles (64 kilometers) away and features sights including Volgograd State University, Pavlov's House and Great Patriotic War Memorial. Motherland Calls and Volga Hydroelectric Station are a number of other places worth checking out for those who have time to spare.
An excellent way to bond with the locals is understanding the local language, so before you head to Karshevitoye why not learn a handful of basic Russian words. "Xotite potancevat?" is handy. In English, it means "Would you like to dance with me?" "Where are you from?" is also useful, so learn to pronounce "Otkuda ty?"
When the time comes to leave Karshevitoye, put the lens cap back on your camera, spend your last of your rubli on last-minute souvenirs, and bid a fond Poka! (farewell) to this unique destination.
