BBC - Volga roadtrip: A Soviet icon

The BBC's Moscow correspondent Rupert Wingfield-Hayes is taking a road trip.

He is traveling along the Volga River from Nizhny Novgorod in the north to Volgograd in the south. Wingfield-Hayes is taking the trip to look at the changes taking place in Russia away from the lights of Moscow. He likens the Volga to the Mississippi River in America - a long river that winds its way through the nation's heartland.

It looks like it will be an interesting series, with updates posted regularly along the way.
