The study and geographical demarcation of natural landscapes continues to be the most important task of modern geography. This kind of information is very important in scientific, theoretical and applied aspects. The object of the reconnaissance is the landscape of the Volga river delta. The boundaries of its central part are determined, which is due to the complexity of the structure of this locality and the high degree of its economic development. At the same time, various sources of information were used: literary and stock materials, remote sensing data of the Earth. The main criteria for the regionalization of the Volga delta landscape are chosen. The lines of the boundaries of localities are primarily proposed to be carried out along watercourses that have different parameters: from sleeves to Erikas (shallow channel). Another indicator is the peculiarities of the morphological structure of the investigated part of the Volga river delta.
