Volga Region (Russian: Поволжье, Povolzhye, literally: "along the Volga") is a historical region in Russia that encompasses territories adjacent to the flow of the Volga River. It is usually classified[by whom?] into:
- 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.
