Cheboksary is the city of a great deal of local attractions. Although, the Government takes care of the historical heritage, a considerable number of modern buildings adorn the city as well. As a result, several years ago the House of Government was added to the shore of the Volga River Bay. On the other side of this Bay there are flower gardens, a summer amphitheatre and a snow-white stone staircase. Moreover, the central part of the Bay is decorated with a massive fountain.
