More than 700 years ago, on the site of the current city of Bolgar, there was an ancient city, the capital of Volga Bulgaria, an early feudal state located between the Volga and Kama rivers. Today the historical and archaeological site of Bolgar is included in the list of UNESCO world heritage sites.
