  • Bolshaya Pokrovskaya street is definitely one of the most popular pedestrian streets for unhurried walks and rest in historic part of Nizhny Novgorod. Lots of shops, restaurants and cafes are located ...  more »
  • Stretching from the pedestrian street. Gorky square. Minin. The architecture of the 18-19 century, small kafjeshki and expensive boutiques, everything is as it should be)))
