How to spoil the mechanical clock? Five unexpected ways

Friends, so we got to the glorious city with the great history – Nizhny Novgorod! In August 2021, we celebrate the 800th anniversary of the city, which means that now is the best time to visit Nizhny and enjoy its color.

To begin with, the Nizhny Novgorod has the upper and lower parts – they are separated by the Oka River.

In both parts there is something to see, but we will go through the city center.

This is the best place for a sightseeing tour, because many monuments and monuments, museums and just interesting and picturesque places are concentrated here.

So, get acquainted: Gorky Square is one of the central squares of Nizhny.

This is a beautiful place for a leisurely walk, with a monument to Maxim Gorky at the head.

Have you tuned in the rhythm of the city? Then we went for emotions – for “Pokrovka”! Bolshaya Pokrovskaya is a local Nizhny Novgorod Arbat.

There are crowds of people, many cafes, entertainment establishments and shops.

Here is the local Alltime salon: go for cool gifts to loved ones from a trip to Nizhny Novgorod! Fans of photographs will appreciate local monuments.

For example, a selfie of the “cheerful goat” will be a vivid memory of a trip to Nizhny, because the monument is really funny! The goat has its own story: when under Catherine the Second Novgorod got a coat of arms with a red deer, local artists painted it differently.

The beast rarely turned out to be like a deer – such coats of arms and dubbed a “cheerful goat”.

Pokrovka is a long street, more than two kilometers.

Therefore, some Coffee-to-go, for example, from Surf Coffee at the beginning of the street, will be an excellent companion during a walk.

Walking along the “Pokrovka”, drinking your favorite coffee and enjoying the weather just invaluable! The attractions that are worth paying attention to – the theater of the drama named after Maxim Gorky and the Nizhny Novgorod branch of the State Bank.

The Department of the State Bank is an architectural monument in the neo -Russian style of 1911.

True, you can get there only once a year – on the “Night of Museums”.

The Maxim Gorky Theater was built at the end of the 18th century, and even then its repertoire was close to the metropolitan.

For example, in the opera M.


Glinka “Life for the Tsar” was a young Fedor Chaliapin.

Having reached the end of Pokrovka, we will be in the Nizhny Novgorod Kremlin.

There are many excursions in the towers and the Kremlin wall, but now they are not available due to the reconstruction of the monument.

Do not despair: on tickets you can go to the Ivanovo tower and take a walk along the Kremlin wall.

We recommend and just wander around the Kremlin, enjoy amazing views and take beautiful photos.

After a walk, it is worth going to the monument to Valery Chkalov, a great pilot and hero of the USSR.

In his honor, a staircase of 442 steps between the upper and Nizhne-Volga embankments is named.

Nizhny Novgorod is a city of sunsets and amazing views! Therefore, the best ending of the day is to observe on the embankment, sitting by the water, and watching like the sun, painting everything with crimson rays, says goodbye to this day .
