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.

The beat place to visit in Nizhny, simply WOW. It has everything, brand shops, souvenirs, land marks, monuments and statues, restaurants and cafes, whatever you wish for. I walked there for several hours without a second of boredom. This is the first place to visit. Also on weekend mornings there were many fun activities, also for little children, and some... More

You can`t miss Pokrovka on your visit to Nizhny no way, this is the only historical center pedestrian area in Nizhny where you can have good food and buy quality souvenirs, a straight line approx 40 -60 min walk long between the Kremlin area and Gorky square. They keep renovating the old palaces over there so the place looks good,... More

A walk along the main street of this beautiful city is an event worth making happen. You want it and you get it here...Cafes, Bars etc. It has quite a few huge souvenir shops with an elaborate collection to make your visit memorable.

A walk from Gorky Square along this street towards the Kremlin is very enjoyable. Great buildings, surprise statures, great view of the Kremlin building. Along the street there is the greatest shop of souveneers and folk-made gifts worth spending time in, as many different areas of folk-art are presented in that store. Also there are trendy cafes and restaurants, bars... More

It is necessarily to walk down this street on foot. This is the story of the city, ancient architecture, shops and restaurants. This streets goes to the Kremlin, where it is possible to continue the tour.
