... today is very diverse. Of course, old town attracts tourists. Finally, the Conception of the restored tower of the Kremlin.
A kind of unfinished since Soviet times. Today, this place looks attractive, very presentable :D .
The Kremlin remains the main attraction of the city and not only because he is handsome. In my opinion it is much prettier Kazan (be not offended at me the Tartars, nothing personal)
First drew attention to the location of the building. The banks of the Volga made him a symbol of the city and a favorite place of Nizhny Novgorod. I can not believe that the Soviet government had intended to demolish it.
The Kremlin
The Kremlin is beautiful in any season and at any time of the day.
With the Kremlin slopes with beautiful views of the city and its attractions.
