Shluzovoy is small Petersburg

Shluzovoy is a part of Togliatti, an administrative part of the Komsomolsky district. This place could be interesting for tourists due to the architecture of its oldest part. This part is located along the canal embankment and performed in the Soviet classicism style ("Stalinist Empire style"). The author of construction project was the architect Ilya Romm.

Small district Shluzovoy called «small St. Petersburg» among the city residents for its architectural ideas. Especially it can be understood in autumn, when the weather is more reminiscent of St. Petersburg’s weather; yellow, orange and red trees perfectly harmonize with the style and colors of the buildings and the atmosphere is very melancholic. Despite the fact that the exterior of many buildings here was restored several times, the original style continues to amaze with its uniqueness. The majestic monument, which is located on square called in honor of Nikonov, who is a hero of the Soviet Union can attract the interest.

The old part of Shluzovoy district is perfect place for photoshoots and walk for enjoying of authentic buildings. All day long it is very quiet there, there are not a lot of people. But the best time to walk here is definitely the sunset time. Soft lighting gives the atmosphere of warmth and wonderful views of the setting sun make you feel romantic.
