VOLGA REGION (Russian : Поволжье, POVOLZHYE, literally:
"along the Volga") is a historical region in
* the Upper Volga Region * the Middle Volga Region (approximately from the mouth of the Oka to the mouth of the Kama ) * the Lower Volga Region
Another notable distinction contrasts the elevated right-bank side (featuring the Volga Upland ) and the left bank side or Trans-Volga Region , Transvolga (Russian : Заволжье, Zavolzhye), which consists of the elevated High Transvolga and the lowland Low Transvolga.
Idel-Ural region is also defined within Povolzhye.
