It made my day! I thought I was lost after coming from Moscow!

A vibrant area where everyone enjoys whatever they like- if is an ice cream, a lemonade, a pub or the amazing street performers! The place is full of people coming up and down to and from Kremlin.

- Mud, garbage, nowhere to sit for rest, leads to nowhere. - Some nice buildings of the pre-soviet era.

Nothing interesting. You walk , and walk, and walk....No place to sit and relax, so you have to walk till the end of the street to find just a few places so you can seat and have a drink or meal.

Noone in Nizhni Novgorod needs any comments about this street, so it's just for our guests: please, have a walk, it worth your time :)

Nice walking street. Central Bank building is nice example of old architecture. Start your trip from Maksim Gorky square and go through. A lot of interesting cafes.

Even if it was cold and windy, a very nice place to take a stroll, lots of shops, lots of people to look at, you could even take a ride on a camel, not many streets in Europe where you can do that, I guess. Also lots of restaurants and coffee shops.

It is the main street for shopping and nice to check out once in Nizjny Novgorod, but it is not a tourist attraction

Some of the greatest-looking buildings are located on this street - even if not all of them are in great shape... Walking on it can get you to the Kremlin from one side, and to one of the nice dining places all around it. And if you look for souvenirs, you will find some stores here, too. Same if you... More
