  • Through the efforts of the authorities to the most interesting area of the city turned into a boring asphalt pad. Around the square, many interesting things: verkhne-volzhskaya embankment, a monument to Valery Chkalov, Chkalovskaya stair, the arsenal Museum, Nizhny Novgorod Kremlin, the monument to Minin. But the area itself is simply a longing. Although, perhaps, from this dull playgrounds to better appreciate the dignity of other places?

  • It is the crime line to meet Polish you Pokrovskaya Street square. Helpful tourist information Office is located here, and become the starting place for sightseeing around this.

  • Normal area with high traffic of people machines. In any case it will get going at Čkalovskuû.
