The Volga River is the longest river in Europe. It is entirely in Russia and has no natural access to any open seas. It starts in a swamp in a small ridge, flowing through prehistoric lake beds on a course that separates the mountains of the Rus- sian Uplands from the flat European Plain before dropping below sea level to enter the inland Caspian Sea.
