Russia: Astrakhan

Astrakhan (Russian: Астрахань) is a city in southern European Russia and the administrative center of Astrakhan Oblast. The city lies on two banks of the Volga River, close to where it discharges into the Caspian Sea at an altitude of 28 meters (92 ft) below sea level. As of the 2010 Census, its population was 520,339. It is the oldest economic and cultural center of the Lower Volga and often called the southernmost outpost of Russia and the "Caspian capital".
