Great you have and excellent views, is magnificent plus very cheap, around 3 dollar one way, is a bit scary while you are on the middle of the river because you can feel very strong wind, but definitely you have to go there!!

It's a must see in Nizhny Novgorod... The ride is not very expensive (80-100 rub) and gives a value-for-money experience accompanied by spectacular views of Nizhny Novgorod and Bor...

We went at sunset and the view was unreal. 100rubles each way, short wait time. Definitely worth it I think. You get a great view of the city, kremlins etc. Great if you have children👍🏻
