Must see

Kremlin
Nizhny Novgorod’s most famous attraction is the Kremlin: a unique building incorporating both medieval fortification walls and towers and classic 19th century architecture. Erected as one of the finest achievements of military art of its day, it has survived numerous sieges and was never captured by an enemy. The Kremlin originally had 14 towers but only 12 have survived until present days. After a restoration in 2013 the thirteenth, Zachatyevskaya tower, has opened. In summertime, one can walk along the fortification wall and admire beautiful views of the Volga river and the confluence of the Volga and the Oka.
