Source of the Volga

Ostashkovsky district, Volgoverkhovye village

The great Russian river Volga takes its rise close to Volgoverkhovye village. The source of the river is inside a chapel from where the Volga comes as a small brook any child can step over.

The Savior Transfiguration Cathedral of the Olginsky Nunnery stands in immediate proximity to the source.
