Bor Local Lore Museum

Reviewed By aleksshparkyy - Nizhny Novgorod, Russia

Расположен в красивом старинном особняке. фасад которого требует ремонта. Да и внутри здания давно бы необходимо сделать ремонт. Экспозиция музея застыла в 70-х годах прошлого века. Скучновато, не впечатлил.

This is the interactive museum with a lot of historical equipment. You can touch everything, see how it works. You will hear the music from the old radio, gramophone and other old music equipment.
Wonderful place!

The Temple in the Name of St. Sergius of Radonezh

Reviewed By Trunov11 - Moscow, Russia

Такой красивой детской площадки, как при этом храме, я не видел ещё нигде. Место было пустынно с самого утра, но чуть позже сюда стали приходить люди разных возрастов и социальных положений. Пенсионеры, молодые мамы, статные горожане - место ожило, стало уже каким-то другим. При этом люди сделали его ещё красочнее, лучше. Кстати, отсюда можно даже увидеть Чкаловскую лестницу, главное, чтобы не подвела погода!
Территория хоть и не такая большая, но походить есть где. Самое главное - не торопитесь, тут на самом деле благодатная почва.

Church of Nativity of Most Holy Mother of God

Reviewed By Bright8 - Nizhny Novgorod, Russia

The Rozhdestvenskaya church is one of the most beautiful one in Nizhny Novgorod.
The legend tells when the church was built, Stroganov (the merchant who gave the order to build the church) was so pleased with the structure so that asked the main builder if he could repeat the same and build another one the same church. The builder said that he could and was blinded at once.
The other legend tells that the church was built by the builder-magician. When he was ordered to be catched, he run to the bell tower and turned into the raven, and flied away.

Museum of Military Equipment in the Open Air

Reviewed By aleksshparkyy - Nizhny Novgorod, Russia

Небольшой сквер с площадкой военной техники. Выставлена военная техника времен СССР. Вся техника в отличном состоянии. Много детворы, которая с интересом лазит по "броне". Не плохо бы обновить таблички с ТТХ вооружений.

Fedorovsky Embankment

Reviewed By Sergey G - Indianapolis, Indiana

Nizhny is all about views. The central part sits on the hills overlooking two great rivers coming together, so the views are plenty. Fedorovsky Embankment is certainly one of the best spots. The Embankment is designed as a cascade of viewing platforms. The platforms have benches and some have flowers and other decorative pieces. So it is very comfortable to have a packed lunch there on a good day. From the Embankment you can see the lower part of the city, the Fair buildings, the Nevsky Cathedral, the new stadium building cite, the Strelka, and a part of Rozdenstvenslyaya among other things. It's a top 10 things to do in the city i'd say.

Galileo Park

The pavilion of more than 1000 m2: interactive exhibits, optical illusions, amazing musical instruments, the mysterious mirror, the room with the broken gravity, intricate mazes, unexpected photo zone and much more. You’ll feel a dwarf and a giant, learn to play the water pipes, play on the strings of invisible harps, create your own world.

Отлично провели время. Все продумано хорошо организовано интересные локации, аттракционы. Некоторые вызвали просто истерический смех. ))) при этом научная составляющая тоже есть. Из зеркального лабиринта нас успешно спасли.

Pechersky Ascension Monastery

Reviewed By Belo4ka - Moscow

The monastery was founded in 14th century by St. Dionysus.
A nice quite place, with wonderful views, interesting churches and amazing outdoor cafe with cheap and tasty pastry (“pirozhki”) for 20 rubles and hot tea (10 rubles).
If you walk from the city center it's better to come from Sennaya.

State Bank

Reviewed By Frickelbude - Dusseldorf, Germany

If you walk the Bolshaya Pokrovskaya street, you cannot miss this building. By far for me the most impressive building in Nizhniy Novgorod, which otherwise has a lot of architecture to admire - from art-nouveau through Stalinist-Empire style to the baroque and old medieval places... for me this one looks like a fairytale castle.
