    This is a military engineering structure of the beginning of the XVI century, which was one of the most important elements in the defense of the city. In the entire history of its existence, it has never been captured, despite numerous attempts!

    The oldest Nizhny Novgorod cathedral, Mikhailo-Arkhangelsky (an architectural monument of the XVII century), is located here, the ashes of the great Nizhny Novgorod resident Kozma Minin are buried in it.

    Next, you will have an excursion to the Voznesensky Pechersk Monastery.

    The monastery was founded in 1328. The rich history places this object among the main attractions of the city and the country, this object is protected at the federal level.

    Today, the ensemble of the monastery occupies more than 5 hectares and includes 5 temples, a bell tower and bishops' chambers. The bell tower of the monastery is a rare type of ancient Russian belfries of the XVI century, and during its existence it acquired a large slope like the Leaning Tower of Pisa.

    The oldest of the chronicle vaults, the Laurentian Chronicle, was compiled within the walls of the monastery.

    This road is remarkable for many reasons. Firstly, it has the largest unsupported span over the water surface in Europe, with a length of about 800 meters.

    Secondly, from the highest point there are magnificent views of Nizhny Novgorod and the flood meadows of the Bor floodplain. Thirdly, roads of this scale have never been built in the central part of Russia before.

    The tour ends on the cable car - free time, tourists get to the hotel on their own.
