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.

A brick walkway starts near Gorky Square and leads through attractive buildings which retain classical facades, but with modern and comfortable interiors, ending at the Kremlin, near the river Volga. Statues of a pleasant character recall past eras where dress and manners were more elegant. Street musicians play nice music (traditional Russian, modern, etc.) even in winter. Altogether a pleasant... More

Like in other Russian cities this is a long walking street, where you can meet contrasting old and modern buildings, expensive cafes and shops, some original sculptures and plenty of souvenirs sellers. Definitely it is worth to stroll along, but won't give you an ecstasy of feelings.
