Nizhny Novgorod

Russia's Pocket

Founded eight centuries ago at the confluence of the Volga and the Oka rivers, Nizhny Novgorod boasts over 600 historical, cultural, and architectural monuments. A major trading and transportation center since its founding in the 13th century, the city thrives largely thanks to its booming auto and IT industries, which earned it the epithet "Russia's wallet." Still relatively undiscovered by foreign travelers, Nizhny offers you a chance to explore centuries of history and culture in the laid-back atmosphere of a prosperous and confident modern city. Begin your adventure at Nizhny's main attraction, a 16th-century fortress occupying a prominent hill in the historical town center.
