There are hundreds of historical monuments and features in Nizhny Novgorod, each more beautiful and unique than the last. A red brick kremlin, stone cathedrals, a futuristic planetarium, medieval monasteries, a hyperboloid tower... Nizhny Novgorod seems to be a mashup of cultures, eras and technologies that all miraculously work in harmony to create an endearing urban landscape.

After having been at the Moscow Zoo the week before (half of it being remodeled and closed), I was really impressed by the zoo in Nizhny Novgorod. There is a wide variety of animals - everything from kangaroos to tigers. The grounds, cages, etc. were all clean and everything seemed well cared for. It is a wonderful place to go spend a few hours as a family.

This is the interactive museum with a lot of historical equipment. You can touch everything, see how it works. You will hear the music from the old radio, gramophone and other old music equipment.
People there will answer all your questions and say something about the history.

The Rozhdestvenskaya church is one of the most beautiful one in Nizhny Novgorod.
The legend tells when the church was built, Stroganov (the merchant who gave the order to build the church) was so pleased with the structure so that asked the main builder if he could repeat the same and build another one the same church. The builder said that he could and was blinded at once.
The other legend tells that the church was built by the builder-magician. When he was ordered to be catched, he run to the bell tower and turned into the raven, and flied away.

Nizhny is all about views. The central part sits on the hills overlooking two great rivers coming together, so the views are plenty. Fedorovsky Embankment is certainly one of the best spots. The Embankment is designed as a cascade of viewing platforms. The platforms have benches and some have flowers and other decorative pieces. So it is very comfortable to have a packed lunch there on a good day. From the Embankment you can see the lower part of the city, the Fair buildings, the Nevsky Cathedral, the new stadium building cite, the Strelka, and a part of Rozdenstvenslyaya among other things. It's a top 10 things to do in the city i'd say.

The pavilion of more than 1000 m2: interactive exhibits, optical illusions, amazing musical instruments, the mysterious mirror, the room with the broken gravity, intricate mazes, unexpected photo zone and much more. You’ll feel a dwarf and a giant, learn to play the water pipes, play on the strings of invisible harps, create your own world.

The monastery was founded in 14th century by St. Dionysus.
A nice quite place, with wonderful views, interesting churches and amazing outdoor cafe with cheap and tasty pastry (“pirozhki”) for 20 rubles and hot tea (10 rubles).
If you walk from the city center it's better to come from Sennaya.

If you walk the Bolshaya Pokrovskaya street, you cannot miss this building. By far for me the most impressive building in Nizhniy Novgorod, which otherwise has a lot of architecture to admire - from art-nouveau through Stalinist-Empire style to the baroque and old medieval places... for me this one looks like a fairytale castle.

The Cathedral was built in honor of Alexander II, who visited Nizhny Novgorod during the International industrial artistic exhibition that was held in Nizhny Novgorod in 1896.
The Saint Alexander-Nevsky Cathedral is the highest one in Nizhny Novgorod. Its height is 80 metres.
The Cathedral was built for the means of tradespeople of Nizhny Novgorod in 1881 at the memory of the visiting of Nizhny Novgorod by the Emperor Alexander II in 1858.
In 2009 the Saint Alexander-Nevsky Cathedral got the status of the Cathedral.

As the title says it, for me this is nicer pedestrian street and there are better options for nightlife here. Also some very sights along the way.
