Looking at Nizhny Novgorod, it possesses a special grandeur as it stands in the high wooded hills, long called Dyatlov’s hills. Here the city’s old kremlin rises above the city. It is inside the kremlin’s powerful walls that tourists and visitors love to go for walks, but this impressive structure is by far not the only sight Nizhny Novgorod has to offer. It’s definitely worth visiting Bolshaya Pokrovskaya Street, a place once inhabited by noblemen, distinguished merchants and manufacturers. On this street you can find many old buildings as well as interesting statues, which are sometimes difficult to spot as they easily blend in with their surroundings. In the Russian Museum visitors have the opportunity to, through photographs, look into the faces of Nizhny Novgorod citizens who lived there more than 100 years ago. Host Irina Pudova took a ride on a tram, admired the Volga River and saw how some amazing machines – airfoil boats – are made.
