Verhnevolzhskaya Embankment, Nizhny Novgorod

Enjoy a panoramic perspective at Verhnevolzhskaya Embankment, one of Nizhny Novgorod's main waterfront promenades. Choose a path that goes right next to the Volga River, or opt for the one farther up the hill. Either way, you'll find that it's a good chance to stretch your legs, so go for a casual stroll, or lace up your sneakers and hit the pavement. Be sure to glance across to the other side of the river, where you'll be rewarded with a sweeping view of the forested bank and walls of the Nizhny Novgorod castle.

    Overall impression-walked well! But there is one thing, but ... It priryvaetsja and again begins ... To the Kremlin could make continuous pedestrian zone. View on the Volga River is terrific!

    Quay, certainly not along the river and over the River from the Kremlin, begins about Chkalovskoj stairs and goes to springboard. More suited to walking. Cafe is, but very few. Splendid view on the Volga River and the town of Bor on the other Bank. Very nice.

    Walk along the waterfront and enjoy the spaciousness of the great river must each guest of Nizhniy Novgorod. It is a sign of the city with the architecture of the past centuries. You can visit museums, if there is interest. To enjoy better walk in daylight, though, and in the evening, enjoy.
