The webcam is aimed at one of the main attractions of the city of Astrakhan – Petrovskaya Embankment on the bank of the Volga River.
This Embankment of Astrakhan, which is broadcasting live, is one of the most popular places for walking and relaxing for citizens and tourists.
In the past, Petrovskaya Embankment, shown in an online camera, served as an important port where trade was conducted, ships were unloaded and loaded, and deals were made.
In the middle of the 20th century, the embankment in the webcam gradually began to change. Appeared squares and beautiful concrete walkways.
In 2007, on the embankment of Astrakhan, perfectly demonstrated by this live camera, by initiative of local residents was launched a reconstruction.
In 2009, on the day of the 450th anniversary of Petrovskaya Embankment, from where the live stream is being conducted, appeared a new promenade.
Astrakhan Petrovskaya Embankment, which you see well in this webcam, is a large promenade area 20 meters wide and 2 km long. It starts from the civil registry office, continuing Red Embankment, and ends at Peter I Monument.
The embankment is divided into several parts:
• The territory with the Fountain Wedding Waltz and a descent to the Volga River;
• The area for walking with the Petrovsky Fountain, large number of cafes and summer theatre;
• Area for children with playgrounds and attractions.

On the boardwalk, which you see in a live cam, there are beautiful lights and benches. The area is laid out with a green lawn with flower beds, which also fall into the lens of the webcam. In some places, there is a descent to the Volga River. Locals love to come at the end of the day and enjoy the beautiful sunset.
Monument to fallen border guards
Besides Petrovskaya Embankment, in this online camera you can clearly see the Monument to the Fallen Border Guards, opened on May 27, 2017, on Border Guards Day.
The monument, shown in live stream, is an 8-meter granite obelisk in the form of a border pillar. The author of the monument is the architect Alexander Fedorchenko.
The initiative to erect this monument came from the Astrakhan regional public organization “Veterans of the Border Service”.
The obelisk that the online camera is aimed at is a tetrahedral, tapering pillar with a pyramid-shaped point. On three sides on its ledges there are three high reliefs illustrating the history of the border service, made according to the sketches of A.I. Fedorchenko. On the south side there is a plate with the inscription “Monument to border guards, defenders of the borders of our country”, above it is a contour image of the border of the Russian Federation with the coat of arms of the Russian border service in the center.
