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.

the second largest fortress in Russia, really well-preserved and with amazing views from the walls. several interesting museums in the towers, some beautiful monumemts and a Soviet era war memorial inside the fortress. the best time to visit - definitely summer!

Just avoid visiting the Kremlin at late November or the beginning of December, Because you wont see much and your visit will be useless, At that time the early preparation of Christmas began and all the place will be like a working location and it would be even hard to take photos specially in front of Moscow Mall. the picture...

The history is fascinating. It contains interesting Soviet era war memorials including an eternal flame for WWII. The view over the river is absolutely breathtaking. It is a wonderful place to walk around in.

This Kremlin which is more than 500 years old is n beautifully located on the banks of River Volga. the brick architecture now houses goverment offices etc. Even from outside the look is magestic. Inside the walls beautiful cathedrals are worth the view.

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.

A visit inside the Kremlin is a must, if visiting Moscow. there is an entry fees to enter inside, but it is well worth the money. i was lucky enough to have a guide for my time inside which i would totally recommend, as you get to see a few little hidden gems and also get told information that is...
