Owner description: 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.

Nice example of Russian medieval architecture. Not crowded with tourists as in Moscow for example. And really heartbreaking view at Oka's and Volga's connection - this is a must in Nizhniy.

The scent of old Russia, a beautiful place by the river. A historical castle with a great view. WW2 tanks and cars in display, and pictures of war heroes by the wall. Really good souvenir shops with considerable prices. A very nice place to visit.

3 cathedrals in one tiny walled city, no vehicles on the roads, the largest bell in the world, the largest canon in the world and the prime ministers offices were just a few of the sights in this amazing area of Moscow and there is even a "tame" guard you can photograph in his smart Russian guard uniform.

The Kremlin takes you right into the Olde Russia. The spirit of the entire place is like a fairy tale. The buildings are well-restored, There are many surprises within those walls, The Church, the Flame, the vistas are divine.

I did not know that it was Buildt by Italian architects. In the arches of the fortress walls is noticeable. There is something to see: the wall itself, the old buildings on the site and the exposure of military equipment of the 2nd World War.

The walls and towers of the Kremlin are very atmospheric and really do give the city a very special feel. Do not forget to walk the walls and to enjoy climbing on the old military vehicles parked inside the Kremlin grounds.

This was a hi-light of my trip to this City. A nice place to walk around with stunning views across the rivers and the city. Only a few minutes walk from the main walking shopping street in the city.
