    In 1947, the Astrakhan Kremlin was included in the list of architectural and historical monuments of national importance and placed under state protection. 

    We will also definitely stop by the Astrakhan Fish Market, a very colorful place where you can buy fish for every taste and just feel the atmosphere of this port city, where oriental bazaars have been noisy for centuries, and merchants were one of the main strata of the population.

    The collection of archaeological objects made of precious metals of the Astrakhan Museum-Reserve began to form in the second half of the XX century.
