On Vetluga river

Vetluga river is a great left affluent of Volga, about 500 km (280 miles) of length, lying in area of Nizny Novgorod. Miles and miles of sand beach and miles of pathless forests are the character attributes of Vetluga. Canoe tourists from Moscow, Sankt-Petersburg, Nizny Novgorod like that easy, leisured river. I made my trip at 1997 and hope to repeat it.
