Reviews of Nizhniy Novgorod

The city on a hill is an unique blend of old and new, and is still relatively untouched by tourism despite being described by locals as “Russia’s third capital.” Its highest point has spectacular views of the Volga River, the longest river in Europe, and the town is filled with both ornate old buildings (including the original home of famous Russian writer Maxim Gorky!) and up-and-coming contemporary art galleries.


A city that cannot be admired from the first meeting! When you get here, you immediately feel its greatness and serenity. You can enjoy its views for hours: the Oka and the Volga, endless hills, one above the other ... It's easy to get lost here, but such an adventure is only a joy!
