The Kremlin, Nizhny Novgorod

The region's cultural and political center, The Kremlin occupies a prominent hill in the historical city center of Nizhny Novgorod. Built in the 1500s as part of the country's eastern defenses, the impregnable fortress' 2 km (1.2 mi) long wall originally featured 13 watchtowers, 12 of which survive to this day. Once home to a permanent military garrison, this complex of historical buildings now houses mostly government offices. Inside the 12 m (40 ft) high walls, you can visit a small cathedral dedicated to the Archangel Michael and famous for containing the tomb of Kuzma Minin, a national hero who made his name defending the city against a 17th-century Polish invasion.

  • Interesting excursions are carried out in the Kremlin (and bus). But, but, with all the positive impression from the Kremlin museums, one should mention the rudeness and boorishness of one employee. This Anastasia Ivanovna (name not reported to me, that is concealed). Very nasty residue left after visiting the Museum in Dmitrievskaya Tower. Even had to leave a bad review about her attitude towards visitors. Disgusting woman!

  • Interesting historical place NN! Be sure to visit all the guests, who are for the first time in the bottom! Antiquity, breathtaking views of the Volga and the Oka, zarechnuju part of the city and zavolzhskie Dali, Cathedral of the Archangel, exhibitions, excursions, promenade, cafes and canteens. The Nizhny Novgorod Kremlin can tell long, but better to devote time to his visit, it's worth it!

  • The children really enjoyed military equipment near the Kremlin. All climbed. There were ladders and roads and up and down. On exit from the Kremlin immediately get into the maelstrom of the city.
