Best Hotels in Volgograd

Volgograd Introduction

Under its former name, Stalingrad, this industrial city on the banks of the Volga became an emblem for one of the bloodiest and most pivotal conflicts of the 20th century, and many of Volgograd's attractions are related to its WW2 history. Since the city was almost completely destroyed during the fighting, it was rebuilt as a "hero city," and the grandeur of much of its architecture reflects an outpouring of national pride at the great Soviet victory.

Hotels in Volgograd

Hotels in Volgograd range all the way from no-frills budget hotels to sprawling suites in luxury hotels. Volgograd hotels usually offer free Wi-Fi and sometimes add parking too. Luxury hotels in Volgograd are often branches of major international hotel chains, and usually feature spas, bars and restaurants, plus conference facilities for business travellers. Those right at the top of the range add amenities such as full-service health clubs and pools. Cheap Volgograd hotels tend to be fairly basic, with no-frills rooms offering minimal amenities. Mid-range properties often offer straightforward restaurants, and many provide free breakfast for guests.

Where to stay in Volgograd

The majority of Volgograd's hotels are located in the Tsentralny district, along with most of the main attractions. The more upscale hotels are generally clustered round Volgograd rail station and the nearby parks and squares. There's a decent amount of budget accommodation in Volgograd, but it tends to be a little further out from the centre, for example in the more residential Voroshilovsky or Dzerzhinsky districts. There are also hotels around the airport out to the west, which may be useful for travellers with late or early flights.

Things to see in Volgograd

One of the highest points in the city, the hill of Mamaev Kurgan, was lost and recaptured many times during the WW2 Battle of Stalingrad, where Soviet forces finally halted Hitler's advance at great human cost. After the war, Mamaev Kurgan became a giant war memorial, featuring cemeteries, gardens, a church and a pantheon inscribed with thousands of names. It's dominated by a towering, 240ft statue of Mother Russia holding a sword. Other war-related sites include the Panorama Museum of the Battle of Stalingrad, featuring a rifle belonging to the famous sniper, Vassily Zaytsev (whose story was immortalised in the film Enemy at the Gates). Apart from its battle history, Volgograd's past is also bound up with that of the river Volga, and the Museum of the Volga-Don Canal provides an insight into the story of water transport in the area. The canal itself, with its great white entry arch, is also an impressive sight.

How to get to Volgograd

Volgograd has its own international airport, and though international services are fairly limited, there are a good number of domestic flights. The airport is around 10 miles from the city centre, and there's a bus service running between the two. Many travellers also access Volgograd via the train station, which has good links to cities such as Moscow and Saint Petersburg. The city is a stop-off point on the various river cruises that ply the Volga during the summer months too. Travel in Volgograd itself is via bus, tram and trolleybus, plus a light rail service with underground sections.
