Astrakhan is a location in 80 Days. It is situated in south-western Russia, on the Northern edge of the Caspian Sea near Kazakhstan.
Astrakhan rests beside the mighty Volga river. The banks of the Volga are famously muddy, and vats of river mud are available to bathe in as a customary form of relaxation. (If Fogg is in poor health, e.g. from attempting a rushed journey to Tsaritsyn, he will accept the opportunity for mud-river bathing and will regain significant health in doing so.) However, travelling out to the river bank on your own can be dangerous, as you may quickly find yourself stuck.
The people of Astrakhan are mostly friendly and will offer you advice on how to continue your journey.
