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.

A great view from the river or from the street on top of the bluff - I recommend a car be used. It is a complete ancient Kremlin with WW II memorabilia displayed inside. It is still the center of city administration.

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...More

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.
