Nizhny Novgorod by plane?
How do I get there from Houston?
Re: Re: Nizhny Novgorod by plane?
AQnother two options: (i) fly via St-Petersburg (could be cheaper since Pulkovo Airlines is generally cheaper than Aeroflot) (ii) take a train from Moscow - it is 6 hours plus 1 hr transfer from either airport, but could be badly timed.
Re: Nizhny Novgorod by plane?
I can agree that train connection is better. You will not lose time for transfer from airport to the sity (in Nizhnij), and you can save one night in a hotel (night trains are very comfortable and could be of any class up to luxurious one).
The most useful train is No.022, but you can use Transsiberian express as well (No. 020)
Travel Tips for Nizhniy Novgorod

In Kreml there are also lot of these army things... There we saw also many couples who had just married. Okay, those two things had nothing in common but... anyway. From Kreml there are also nice view to see two rivers coming one (Volga and Oka (?)).
But not all churches are...
But not all churches are ruined: some of them are in the process of restauration. This is the Annunciation Monastery in Murom, fortunately, it was not destroyed, it is now in the custody of the Russian Orthodox Church, and people's donations allow to carry out renovation.
This university-building is to be found in the pedestrian-area of Bolschaja Pokrowskaja , not far from the lovely Art-Nouveau-building of the Bank of Russia. The building has an interesting facade and a nice park with some shady benches in front of it.
V.I.Lenin and the Marxists of Nichny Novgorod"
"To V.I.Lenin and the Marxists of Nichny Novgorod" is the translation of the inscription on this monument that you will find at the western end of the pedestrian area of the street "Bolschaja Pokrowskaja". So you will see that the monuments of Lenin did not all disappear after the last revolution of 1989.
Thanks a lot to Viktor (HunterV) for your help in the translation of the inscription!
How to find this monument : walk to the west-end of Bolschaja Pokrowskaja and when you get to the "Postman on his bike" you turn to the right (see my last photograph !)
the belfry of the Romanoff church
The belfry of the Romanoff church is something that you might easily oversee, because you will not see it from the street, you actually have to step up a steep hill in order to take the photos from the place, where I did. The belfry is placed next to the church and it is also the only place to enter the church.
