Honestly I don't understand why this exists. Is this a legitimate way that people commute from Bor to NN? In any case, it was cheap, and pretty cool - a cool view of the Volga!

This was very enjoyable. The price is really cheap. The view over the river is spectacular. Once you get to the other side to Bor, there isn't much happening in that town, but the ride itself is definitely worth doing.

Crossing the Volga from such a height is really beautiful. One gets great views, and the ticket is quite cheap. However Bor (the city on the opposite side) is quite boring. A trip to the cable car is nevertheless interesting, since a big monastery is also situated nearby, and can be combined with the cable car ride..

Many people then they heard about cable car imagine mountains. But this time you will be flying over the great river Volga from Nizhny Novgorod to one of its suburb. This is magnificent view and one of the must see experience if you occasionally stay in Nyzhniy Novgorod. In strong wind the road isn't work and you might wait in... More

with only 90rubles, you can feel the experience using cable car. This was my first time, so kinda freaking me out to be in cable car, where I can look everything from above. After all, this worth to try to go to Bor town.
