Verhnevolzhskaya Embankment, Nizhny Novgorod

4.7
#6 of 37 in Sightseeing in Nizhny Novgorod
Landmark Tourist Spot
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. Before you head to Nizhny Novgorod, plan trip itinerary details with our user-friendly Nizhny Novgorod itinerary maker, to make sure you see all that Nizhny Novgorod has to offer, including Verhnevolzhskaya Embankment.
