I walked through this pedestrian street several times and every time think why such a nice historic and interesting place is in such a bad condition. You feel a mix of 19th 20th centuries there and a lot of Soviet heritage. Always dirty. It could have been a place for not only visitors but also for "Nizhegorodtsev"

Many quirky statues, restaurants, even some museums. Just don't wander off to side-streets, you'll be disappointed :)

This street is Nizhny's attempt to be stylish, with some success. It is very touristy, but there are a lot of nice old buildings and it is definitely worth a stroll if you are in the vicinity.

The street is a good place to walk. I was here on the weekend, here you can find a lot of souvenirs. I also found here an orchestra playing relaxing life music. Don't forget to see on Volga and Oka from top of the NN!

A lot of good has been said about this street in all previous reviews I just like to add that now its also a kids-friendly sightseeing as there is a magnificent kids playground right in front of kids puppet theater - one of the best I've seen all over the world, there are also ponies to get a ride for...

The street is just beautiful. You can walk there and back again and still finding something new. The atmosphere in Nizhy Novgorod is very relaxing and extremely friendly and you can feel it while walking. Also the buildings are wonderful and all the statues are just an icing on a cake.

The most popular pedestrian zone in Nizhny Novgorod. The street is lined with storefronts and closed off to all automobile traffic. Great place for a casual night out!

Clean and renovated Pokrovskaya street brings you to old times. Lots of nice small places are full of people, service is very good and coffee is great as well. Meeting place both for young people and for the older generation and you have a chance to see real citizens here.
