Don’t drive into the River Volga!

Nizhny Novgorod is a historic Russian city located where the Oka River meets the Volga.

Looking west over the Oka River in Nizhny Novgorod

As you might expect, many roads lead to the water.

Warning signs on a road leading down to the Volga River

In the middle of winter there is no difference between snow and ice, so signs warn motorists not to drive out into the river.

But my favourite touch is this pair of signs.


Н. Новгород

р. Во́лга

Which translates to.

End Nizhny Novgorod

Start River Volga

    There may be something new to look at on Russian dashcam videos, people missing the river sign and coming to grief.
