The Christmas or Stroganov Orthodox Church is one of my favorites not only in Nizhny Novgorod, but also in Russia. The combination of pink walls and white stone carvings looks very elegant. The highlight of the church is that the heads of the temple at the end of the 19th century, they were painted like the heads of St. Basil's Cathedral in Moscow. The chapters were originally green. Windows, portals of entrances, additional columns are decorated with white stone carvings. Definitely worth a visit.

This Church is commonly known as Stroganoff Church. Officially it is called the Church of the Nativity. But everyone calls it by the name of its funders - the rich family of Stroganoff (French style spelling). The church was visited by Peter the Great himself. In the Soviet times it was planned to be demolished. Saved by the last priest who served here before the Revolution, who persuaded the government to preserve it for the art sake. So it became the museum of atheism, and the priest - its director, his deputy - a guard. Such a twist of history.

The façade is simply too aesthetically attractive to draw my approach by putting behind other engagements.
Colors of the building are sharp yet very well coordinated.

This is another church with magnificent history and beauty. Unlike the cathedral across the Volga river, this church was a family church for the royal family. Therefore it is small, very old and feels almost cosy. Great place to experience classic Christian architecture of Central Russia.
Again, it is an active church and services are continuously running, so modest attire, and basic respect to religion and values of other is required.
Overall beautiful building and quite well preserved.

We were in town at the beginning of last April (2018) and this church appeared to be totally closed, with parts covered in scaffolding. I wish we'd been able to go inside, and to the onion domes in all their glory.

The church is quite nice from the outside not that much to see on the inside. It is free so worth it if you pass by. Afterwards you can go to the top of the embankment and get the view of the city.

If you are in Rozhdestvenskaya, you must see this Church. Very old and traditional. It has some restorations now but from inside it is very nice.

This church is probably one of most impressive architectural mix in riverside tourist area of old Nizhny, built in 1719 by the rich people Stroganoff it was one of rare churches preserved over Soviet time as an anti-religion museum. Last time we visited the bell tower was under restauration, and we saw Russian babies being baptised inside, it`s certainly worth a picture
