Samara became the first Estonian and Livonian emigrants’ land of heart’s desire where easy labour and bountiful yields were reportedly awaiting. In the second half of the 19th century several Estonian settlements were established in the region. At the beginning of the 21st century Anu Korb and Tiit Joala travelled on the trail of the Estonian settlers.
