Main Attractions and Sights in Nizhny Novgorod

Exploring the downtown region of the city can be rewarding. The city was built during the time of the Russian Revival and features many buildings built in the Stalin Empire style. The Grand Kremlin dating to 1500-1511 is a major tourist attraction.

The opportunity to visit the Nizhny Novgorod Art Gallery should not be missed which displays a collection of art dedicated to Russian Culture, though there are more than six hundred other sights of historic, architectural, and cultural interest to be seen throughout the city.

Two other major attractions are the two Medieval Abbeys, the Pechersky Ascension Monastery with its 5 Domed Cathedral dating to 1640, and the Church of Our Lady of Smolensk, dating to 1694 located in the Kanavinsky district

A more recent addition to the Nizhny attraction is the 128 meter high Open-Work Hyperboloid Tower situated on the bank of the River Oka close by Dzerzhinsk. If you are fit enough to make a long climb, then the Kremlin staircase when climbed, will afford a lovely panoramic view of the whole of Nizhny Novgorod.
