15 minutes (approximately) ride across Volga from Nizhniy Novgorod to Bor in a car for 8 persons. Amazing views. You may take a boat to get back.

A cable car is a kind of things you'd never expect to see in ancient Russian town. That's the very reason to ride it.

After you pay your visit to Kremlin head to Verkhne-Volzhskaya embankment and enjoy its architectural ensemble mixed from different styles: From Russian classic to Soviet constructivism. In the end of street turn right to Sennaya square, then turn left after the construction site and walk along Bolshaya Pecherskaya street heading Rodionova street. Look for sign saying КАНАТНАЯ ДОРОГА, turn left, then turn left in the end of street and then turn right.

Ticket for single ride costs 70 Roubles (~2 Euro). Unfortunately, only one-way tickets available. The journey takes around 12 minutes and will give you breathtaking moments of hanging in the middle of the longest cable car span in the world - 800 meters between two posts on Volga banks.

Keep in mind that this cable car is heavily used by locals, so be ready to wait in queue and then get cramped in a car with another 7 people.

Another down-side is that there's nothing really interesting on the other side in Nizhny's satellite town Bor. Making a return trip by the same way would be a wise decision.
