    Bus and pedestrian sightseeing tour of Nizhny Novgorod "The city above the Volga and the Oka" (duration 4.5 hours).

    During a sightseeing bus and walking tour of Nizhny Novgorod, you will get acquainted with the history of the city, founded eight centuries ago. 

    You will see the main sights of Nizhny Novgorod: the Chkalovskaya Staircase, the Alexander Nevsky Cathedral, the monument to M. Gorky, etc., visit the Stroganov (Christmas) Church, an architectural monument of the XVII century.

    You will drive through historical streets that have preserved their beauty and former greatness: Malaya Pokrovskaya, Rozhdestvenskaya, Ilyinskaya, Verkhnevolzhskaya and Nizhnevolzhskaya embankments, visit Minin and Pozharsky Squares, Gorky Square, Sennaya, etc., visit the observation decks, from where you can enjoy "breathtaking" views of the riverine part of the city. 

    Nizhny Novgorod has the highest Volga embankment, and everyone can enjoy a wonderful view of the Volga expanses.

    After the bus part of the tour, you will take an exciting walking tour of the Nizhny Novgorod Kremlin.

    This is a unique 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 is located here – Mikhailo-Arkhangelsky (an architectural monument of the XVII century), it is in it that the ashes of the great Nizhny Novgorod resident Kozma Minin are buried. 

    From the Volga, the ensemble of the Nizhny Novgorod Kremlin resembles a "stone necklace thrown on the slopes of the woodpecker mountains."

    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 Laurentian Chronicle, the oldest of the chronicles, was compiled within the walls of the monastery.

    The excursion program will end with a cable car ride along the Nizhny Novgorod – Bor – Nizhny Novgorod route (in a circle without exit).

    This road is remarkable for many reasons. Firstly, it has the largest unsupported span in Europe over the water surface (the main channel of the Volga) – about 800 meters long. 

    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.
