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.

Perhaps not as detailed as some of the other more famous kremlins in Russia but some great views nearby. It’s a long walk up the stairs from the river if you go that way but worth the hike.

But I didn't have time to take a tour to learn more about it. Probably, it is worth taking a guided tour there.

The walk up along the walls of Kremlin are spectacular. The view over Volga is fantastic. The tour offers a nice insight into Russian history (without too much information. You can only do this with a tour guide). So worth the visit!

When I was young, I was spending hours inside the Kremlin. There are so many hidden spots to explore. A few years ago there were a couple of hidden ways inside the walls and on top of the roofs of the walls. Also, there are...More

First of all you need to attend walls. From them opens the view to historical part and rivers. Also there are few little museums in towers across the wall.
