September is for travelers who appreciate the rest:
Bolshaya Pokrovskaya street
It combines four squares: Lyadov, Gorky, Teatralnaya, Pozharsky and is one of the most ancient buildings of the city. At the moment, this is one of the main streets, with a length of more than 2 thousand meters. Here you can often meet street musicians and artists. Nearby are monuments of art, a drama theater and a puppet theater.
Nizhny Novgorod Kremlin
The main impregnable fortress and pride of the city of Nizhny Novgorod is the Kremlin. The date of construction of the structure is 1508–1515. Today, the Kremlin has 13 towers from 18 to 30 meters high. There are many monuments on the territory. Go on a tour of the Kremlin walls, plunging into the “medieval era”. A beautiful view opens from afar, approximately from the middle of Bolshaya Pokrovskaya Street. Reach the hills and you will see the majestic image of the Volga River.
In the Switzerland park there are really real alpine views, because the nature of the Nizhny Novgorod region can easily compete with beauty with the most picturesque corners of the Earth. Most recently, the park has been updated: now it is more comfortable for walking, cyclists and walks with children. It is definitely worth visiting “Switzerland”, because it is here that you can break away from the bustle of the city for a while and feel unity with nature.
