The Nizhny Novgorod Kremlin, the monument of history and culture of the world. Erected in the early 16th century to protect the Eastern borders of the Russian state, he never surrendered to the enemy! It is at the walls of the Nizhny Novgorod Kremlin 400 years ago our countrymen at the call of Kuzma Minin joined forces for the expulsion of the invaders from Moscow.

The Kremlin would disappoint you if you are looking for any comparison with the Kremlin at Moscow. But, in a place like Nizhny Novgorod, it is worth visiting once...since there are not many sightseeing places here. There is an old church in its premises...which has a nice ambience.

In 2016 I was heading to Joshkar-Ola between Moscow and the Urals, to visit a Danish friend who lives there now. So Nishniy Novgorod was an obvious city to visit and overnight. The city is beautiful in itself, located at that magnificent river Volga - but the visit at the fortress is a must, if going to this city. It's... More

If you stay in Nizny you must see Kremlin walls. Beautiful view on river from top. A lot of people there on a walk, to caught some fresh air.

If you're here as a tourist, then you must visit this place. The view at the end was incredible, even as cold and windy as it was, I still got lots of great photos as memories from here.

I wonder that the Arsenale inside the Kremlin is not even mentioned in any of Tripadvisors reviews. The Arsenale certainly belongs architectonically to the best museums of contemporary art worldwide. It took more than 12 years to refurbish these former stables and warehouses into this great art place. The Kremlin is administrated from the central ministry of culture in moscow... More

It is a #1 must-see in N/Novgorod. Good to walk both inside the wall and around the wall outside the Kremlin and on the wall as well. There's very nice modern art museum Arsenal and Beautiful Art Museum (Khudozhestvenny Muzey) as well/ Kids will enjoy climbing on military vehicles of WWII. It would be nice to stop by Arkhangelski Church... More

It's a beautiful Kremlin, good views but almost no information in english. You can see a plane, tanks and cars used on ww2.
