Лысая Гора


We're walking up a paved path. Upstairs we can only see the vast expanse, the domes of churches, clouds, and the river Klyazma. It's breathtaking, it's restoring its natural breath. Truly good morning.

Dom Prishletsova

Another example of architecture that makes it hard not to fall in love with this city. Wooden architecture with Art Nouveau elements. Mermaids and fabulous lions carved from wood decorate the windows.

Гороховецкий историко-архитектурный музей (Дом Сапожникова)


In the 17th century, a building was built. Inside, the interiors of that time were recreated. A tiled stove, reminiscent of a fairy house. A necessary thing in everyday life of those years is a machine for getting potato starch. But the main thing, of course, is the Sapozhnikov House itself.

Gazpromneft filling station #343

There's a gas station coming up. If you are tired, make a comfortable stop - come for a coffee!

De Kas


Lunch in the center of Nizhny Novgorod. The restaurant has its own parking lot. Summer veranda looking at a quiet park. Excellent cream soups.

Van Gogh Apartment


Art Galleries

The building of the 19th century has managed in its history to visit a bank, a cinema, just an apartment house with communal apartments. Now, paying tribute to European currents, the space is given to the gallery of modern art. Here you can see works not only of Nizhny Novgorod artists, but also art from all corners of the world.

Артгалерея "Кладовка"

Art Museums

A small space in the historic city centre. A small patio where you can drink tea and read a book among art objects. Besides exhibitions, poetry evenings and music concerts are organized. And the main thing is the center of attraction of the city lovers of vinyl records, there is something to choose from.


Art Galleries

Close to the Kremlin walls. Gradient to interactive exhibitions. Two floors of the historic building are given to contemporary art. Often there are film screenings.


Burger Joints, Food & Drink Shops

At first glance, you can eat burgers here. The locals say they're some of the best in town. As a matter of fact, they are. But that's not why we're here. Yeah, there's a vinyl record store here, too. Mostly: the shopkeeper's collection and what they bring in for exchange. You can't find Oh, but you can dilute the jazz collection here.

Ресторан и кафе "Гнездо аиста"

Restaurants, Cafés

Relaxing interior of the place. Soft sofas after the road also came in handy. Home kitchen.

Van Gogh Apartment

It's time for a little sleep, and tomorrow we'll continue our journey.
