  • First you go inside, get to the staircase. Buy a ticket, do not accept cards for payment, rent stuff in the closet and expect tours. Excursion tedious, boring, all you tell monotone-in General can and without it. You cannot take pictures, only a few rooms-so it makes sense to overtake and be photographed, as long as no one else is such a mess. General Manor itself shows the customer's bezvkusie:) many styles are mixed, in some rooms, all brightly too, in General was a rich-prebogatyj merchant and he wanted the House, best of all, all there was-classic. You can visit, but don't expect a visit from great pleasure. Interesting is the very first room, which shows the entire street in miniature, and in General about the lower Novogrod, but there cannot be photography.

  • Beautiful interiors and interesting exhibitions. Liked seen old maps and photos, especially the 16th Russian industrial exhibition. What a pity that almost nothing of her heritage did not survive! In the Manor of obligatory shoe covers and prohibited photography in virtually all areas. We managed to get into the Hall receptions, but very often it is closed due to various events. It is better to visit the estate on weekdays as weekends can be a lot of people

  • House Palace in the style of an Italian Palazzo, built in 1877. Commissioned by merchant millionaire Sergey Rukavishnikov. Probably this is the most striking building in Nizhny Novgorod. Fascinates with its beautiful and impregnation stories. I advise you to go, a lot goes third-party exhibitions in this building, you will find what to do.
