Nizhny Novgorod

Gazpromneft filling station #209

So, guys, let's go, shall we? Just to avoid surprises on the way, refuel with quality fuel to the full, pump up the tires, fill the washbasin and get coffee with healthy snacks! Cool emotions from the trip!

Shooting club Arsenal Zavolzhe

The first stop of this active journey is ["Arsenal Zavolzhye"]( - one of the best shooting clubs in Nizhny Novgorod region. Here you can shoot archery and play darts, and if you have your own officially registered weapon, you can easily shoot with it here as well. There is no rental in the club yet. You can also come to the shooting range with your own air gun. You can drink tea or coffee with biscuits after training here. You can sign up for training by phone: +7 (920) 02-03-666.


Mayak Na Gor'kovskom Vodokhranilishche

Do not be lazy to reach the lighthouse on Gorky reservoir. You can leave your car on the shore, and reach the lighthouse (although some manage to reach it by car) on a narrow road, which seems to go nowhere. The views from here are truly spectacular!


Rest Areas

Spend the rest of the day at the recreation centre ["Izumrudnoye"]( Here you can also spend the night. Booking is possible on [website]( Here you can rent "rollers" and skates, take a ride on a snowmobile, play billiards, and then go to the Russian sauna or visit the SPA-salon. Please note, it's better to book the sauna in advance by phone: 8 (831) 261-33-73.
