    Visiting the Kremlin is a must on your visit to Moscow. The complex is massive, everything seems majestic and grand in Russia. The Kremlin encompasses a cathedral and surely offices.

    Absolutely lovely walkway, on top of the hill. You can 'see' the season by looking down the hill. Great viewpoints all along the walkway.

    Although this famous staircase was being reconstructed, it was still interesting and attractive. Now best viewed from the embankment.

    It is one of the best places I have visited in the city. Despite the overclowd, I really liked the place because it is a wonderful showplace to come with a family or friends . There are many cafes with tasty food and kind staff. Moreover, the landscapes are picturesque and lovely. More than that, people of the city are very responsive and friendly.
    This place is definitely worth a visit.

    We are from Belarus. Found this place via Internet with very excellent reviews. GalileoPark is located on the 3rd floor of Indigo mall which is not difficult to reach.

    The place is full of enginering devices, exgibits and unusual rooms. We spent there two hours and felt special experience. Trully entertaining.

    Must see if you are in Nizhny.

    Although I couldn't get into the bank I found the facade of the building quite impressive. Definitely worth seeing.

    A large ancient monastery located almost near the river. The territory is fenced with a high wall. First you get to the alley, to the right of which is the alley of the Romanovs, where there are busts of representatives of this last royal dynasty.
    Ahead you see the impressive Ascension Cathedral.
    I was here in the winter and moved along the narrow cleared paths. The monastery cemetery was covered with snow.
    The cathedral was closed, but going up the stairs through the passage I got to the Assumption Church. It is very beautiful, with stunning wall murals.
    In the neighboring building - the bishops' building, there is a church and archaeological museum.
    Definitely worth a visit!

    I'm not a fan of the exterior color, but the inside of this church is beautiful. Wood iconostases. Beautiful painting all over the interior.

    The embankment is a really nice place to walk, now that the renovation has been finished. Great views of the river and the land across the way.

    This is probably the most beautiful street in Nizhny Novgorod.
    She retained the flavor inherent in this merchant city.
    Many beautiful merchant mansions and street decorations have been preserved here - the Nativity Cathedral, which gave the name to the street.
    Any tourist should take a walk here. In addition to beautiful views, there are many of the city's most popular cafes and restaurants.

    Large modern stadium, built for the 2018 FIFA World Cup. Located on the spit of the Oka and Volga rivers. Measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19: thermometry at the entrance, the requirement to maintain social distance, wear a mask, hand sanitizers on the tables, employees in masks.

    Cute sculpture of a goat. The back of the goat is well polished, apparently from riding. Take a photo with your friend on the goat. Close to Sheraton Hotel.

    This is one of the oldest hilltop promenade areas in town connecting Kremlin area with the cableway, about 30 min walk with good river views, excellent on a summer day yet windy out-of-season and chilly wintertime, downhill there is a vast green park. there are a few places for tea and coffee on the way and a couple of museums, so called Radio Lab for interested technicnology fans, Art Museum building with some second-rate European paintings and Makovsky`s famous Kozma Minin Call giant canvas, also Rukavishnikov Estate with some well restored XIXth century deluxe merchant`s house interiors, an idea for a rainy day. After all, this route is a way to save on taxi if you wish to do the cableway and Kremlin the same day, just close your eyes on some heritage buildings that still badly need restauration work

    Standing high on a hill, this monument makes for a great photo, especially with blue sky in the background.

    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.
