The Fifa Fan Fest was there so we have opportunity to see a great party. The square is beautiful and was full of great people for a lot of countries sharing great moments.

This is currently being used for the FIFA Fan Fest (FFF). There is plenty of food and drink stalls at the FFF. The square itself looks beautiful and I really wish I could have seen the full thing without the FFF set up of tents...More

This is where Fifa Fan fest was installed. Great place to hang around, good food around, nice place to exercise (Run or walk around). It feels a really safe environment. You can see the Volga and son other plazas near by.

Some guidebooks claim that this is the biggest square in Europe, but if Wikipedia is to be trusted, Kuibyshev Square in Samara is only No. 3 after Alexanderplatz in Berlin and Plac Defilad (Parade Square) in Warsaw. Still, it merits a quick look and a...More
