  • Broad Street, paved with stone. Lyadova square begins and ends. Minin and Pozharsky. Here you can simply take a walk, go to museums, entertainment centers or at the Café.

  • The wide pedestrian street Bolshaya Pokrovskaya goes to the Kremlin. And next to it you can visit the many cafes, theatres, museums. Go to cafe "Volga-mom" in style and delicious. The street is decorated with various sculptures. At the intersection with ulitsa Oktyabrskaya, you can take tram number 2 and make a circle around the historical part of Nizhny Novgorod. You can go to the Museum of the history of art crafts. There are very interesting. Interesting buildings are on Big Pokrovka.

  • On both sides of the pedestrian streets of the countless number of cafes, restaurants, shops, souvenir shops and small sculptures. Walking down the street will give pleasure to both kids and adults, for some here a lot of interesting entertainment like horseback riding, pony trekking and even camel riding, and for adults in cafés to suit all tastes and budgets. Clearly it would be desirable to note the large number of cast iron sculptures, most of which portray the earlier progulivavshihsja here there are a pair of lovers in the costumes of the turn of the 19 and 20 centuries, shoeshine boy in the CAP and apron seated before a boot and many other interesting characters. So be sure to come, walk, eat, go, take!
