The Nizhny Novgorod Kremlin, the monument of history and culture of the world. Erected in the early 16th century to protect the Eastern borders of the Russian state, he never surrendered to the enemy! It is at the walls of the Nizhny Novgorod Kremlin 400 years ago our countrymen at the call of Kuzma Minin joined forces for the expulsion of the invaders from Moscow.

I wonder that the Arsenale inside the Kremlin is not even mentioned in any of Tripadvisors reviews. The Arsenale certainly belongs architectonically to the best museums of contemporary art worldwide. It took more than 12 years to refurbish these former stables and warehouses into this great art place. The Kremlin is administrated from the central ministry of culture in moscow... More

It is a #1 must-see in N/Novgorod. Good to walk both inside the wall and around the wall outside the Kremlin and on the wall as well. There's very nice modern art museum Arsenal and Beautiful Art Museum (Khudozhestvenny Muzey) as well/ Kids will enjoy climbing on military vehicles of WWII. It would be nice to stop by Arkhangelski Church... More

An ancient fortress from 14th century on a high hill overlooking river Volga. In addition to the fortress there is a memorial with eternal flame for victims of WWII and an exhibition of military equipment produced in the city during that period.

Very interesting place with lots of history behind it Nizhniy is actually the city you should go when visiting Russia as it is very different from Moscow or St Petersburg and you will be exposed to more realistic but yet very pretty way Russians live outside the two capitals

A great place to visit when in this town - go both family or being solo! Full of history, the place honours the heroes who died for freedom in the WW I&II - it is really beautiful! You can also visit Arsenal museum or get down to the river side!

An guided tour would be hardly interesting for foreigners, but highly intriguing for Russians. You can walk up the tower wall for some 1.5 km - a rare opportunity. Anyway, do come here in the evening of a hot summer day to witness a mesmerizing sunset.

When compared to the Kremlin in Moscow or in Kazan, it's not very impressive but it offers fantastic photo opportunities of the Volga River!
