Kamskaya Street at Autumn, Volzhsky, VPI VolgGTU (V) University
Russia

Kamskaya Street at Autumn in Volzhsky, near Volzhsky Polytechnical University.

Volzhsky Polytechnical Institute was established in 1965 as an evening faculty of Volgograd Polytechnical Institute.

Since 1995 it has been VSTU’s (Volgograd State Technical University) branch. For more than 40 years, VPI has gone a long way from an evening faculty to a modern higher education institution with well-established facilities and highly-qualified staff. The distinctive features of the institute are the high volume of scientific and research work, good contacts with the industry and a high employment rate of its graduates.

Preparation of specialists for the local industry, as well as the creation of a social stratum of students and intelligentsia who ensure social stability and contribute to establishing a higher level of culture in Volzhsky and the areas east of the Volga River.

More About Russia

Just in case you mistakenly heard that it was all ice and snow in Russia, take a peek at the Big Bikini Exposition. This is right on the river Moskva in Moscow!Moscow has been the capital of Russia for almost its entire history. The exception is during the period of the Russian Empire, which lasted from 1721 until the Russian Revolution 1917. For these two centuries the capital was St. Petersburg. The Russian Empire was the second largest contiguous Empire in world memory; only the Mongol Empire had been greater.Check out what's happening north of Mongolia these days, in ChitaAlthough you may not have heard of Sochi, on the Black Sea, they're building up quickly and hope to host the 2014 Olympics.Other periods of Russian history include the Tsardom of Russia, from Ivan IV to Peter the Great, and the Grand Duchy (14th-16th centuries).The earliest period of Russian history was ruled by the Novgorod Republic and Kievan Rus, which was the first Russian state dating back to 800AD in Kiev.Modern Russia remains one of the world's superpowers.
