The Zhiguli Mountains (or simply Zhiguli) are a range of wooded mountains located in Russia, on the right bank of the Volga River, in the Samara Bend (Samarskaya Luka). This place is considered to be equal to the world-famous treasures like the Big Barrier reef in Australia. Samara Bend, made by the rounding of the river Volga and protected by the mountains Zhiguly, is a special place. During millions of years a special microclimate and the vegetable kingdom - were formed here. At tops, rocks and other rocky exposures of Zhiguli there are the most ancient geological breeds on a surface which have generated 230-350 million years ago in the Permian and Carboniferous periods. The picturesque mountains Zhiguly also have lots of legends and mysteries. Strange events attract many UFO-scientists here and those who like to collect inexplicable wonders.
