It is also Europe's largest river in terms of discharge and drainage basin.

Due to its geographical situation the Volga played an important role in the movement of people between east and west (from Asia to Europe) as well as south and north. The river flows in Russia through forests, forest-steppes and steppes.
Eleven of the twenty largest cities of Russia, including the capital, Moscow, are located in the Volga's drainage basin.
Some of the largest reservoirs in the world are located along the Volga. The river has a symbolic meaning in Russian culture and is often referred to as Волга-матушка Volga-Matushka (Mother Volga) in Russian literature and folklore.
