“Be careful if you are out of shape”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2012

This is one way to get your heart rate up. It takes you up the hill from the river (near a small boat statue) to the Kremlin and town up above.(maybe you should take it down) Watch out for holes through some of the steps. This is in need of maintenance but a worthwhile place to visit and to climb! Great views abound.

“I say one word - VOLGA - local people doesn't say river, they say VOLGA”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2012

You really must see Volga at least once in your life. And better to see it in Nizhny Novgorod.

“boating”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2012

The staircase is a very interesting shape but does need a visit during summer months with the best views of it from the Volga. Intend to do this later this year, its a great link between the centre of Nizhny and the Volga.
