...in Nizhny Novgorod to visit and walk. Lots of restaurants, shops, bronze sculptures (loved them), performing artists, musicians. Nice ambience, particularly, it was during the World Cup.

Very beautiful walking street! A lot of street musicians, cafes, souvenir shops! A lot of people but I can’t say, that it is overcrowded

Your one stop street for food, cultural heritage, tourist attractions, music, theatre... All in one... Similar to Arbatskaya in Moscow... It's a walk- only street, no vehicles allowed... Cafes, restaurants and attractions on either side... Do check this out !
