The Kondurtscha ( Russian Кондурча , Tatar Кондырча / Qondırça) is a right tributary of the Sok , which flows through the Samara Oblast and Tatarstan in the Russian Federation . It is 294 km long (including 25 km in Tatarstan) and has a catchment area of ​​3,950 km².


The Kondurtscha rises in the north of the Samara Oblast near the village of Staraya Shentala . It flows in a predominantly westerly direction through the agricultural region before reaching the Republic of Tatarstan east of Nurlat .

It passes the city in the south and returns to Samara Oblast after a few kilometers. Here the Kondurtscha turns in predominantly southwest and southern directions. It flows through the northern part of Samara Oblast and flows into the Sok, a tributary of the Volga , at Krasny Yar northeast of Samara .

The main tributaries of the Kondurtscha are the Schlama and Lipowka . Nurlat is a larger city on the Kondurcha. The river is frozen on average from November to April.


On June 18, 1391, the battle of the Kondurcha between the Golden Horde under Toktamish and the Emir Timur took place here, during which Toktamish was defeated against him in Timur's second campaign. The refugees of the Golden Horde were then pursued for two days to the banks of the Volga, which explains a three-day battle described in literature.
