This is a low key outing. Fun to go over the River, We had lunch at a cute restaurant just on left as you exit the station. Then took the return trip. It was a beautiful day and lovely outing.

We took the cable car there and back giving a great view of the city of Nizhny Novgorod and it's surrounds. The queue on the city side was quite long but there was nearly no queue on the other side. Cable car was quite comfortable...More

I recommend doing this only if you have spare time since once you cross the river there is really not much to do on the other side...we took a walk and had a couple of beers in one of the pubs you see from above...More

If you visit Nizhny, make sure to also take the cable car to the hidden gem urban district of Bor. Well worth the 100 Rub Great views along the way. Easiest way to cross the Volga river.

Just crossing over Volga river for 100 RUB/one way. Nothing special. One time trying is enough. Crosses towards Bor town opposite to Nizhny Novgorod.

Out of Kremlin you will come to the river. A nice sandy beach full of people on weekend and by nice weather. The cablebridge over passes the river and leads to a park with attractions not only for kids. Just a short walk to continue...More
