Travel Tips for Nizhniy Novgorod
The trade and Confrence Center
While I did not have occasion to visit this center I did notice it at night because of the elegant lighting work. So I have included it as just one more example of the Russian mastery of decorating with light. A rather plain building complex by day, becomes an artistic display by night!
9th of May - an important festivity in Russia
9th of May is an important festivity in Russia, commemorating the victory of the Soviet Union over the "Deutsches Reich" in WW II. Almost everyone in Russia will have 1-3 days off, you will see giant flags decorating the buildings all over the cities and you will see the local people wearing badges etc.
I was a bit afraid of walking through the city in company of a german tourgroup on such a sensitive date, but in fact it was no problem at all. Tourists are always welcome, the local people were friendly as all the other days.
the monument for the victims of WW II
This monument for the victims of WW II is inside the Kreml of Nizhniy Novgorod, in the back and on the terrace facing the river. I had been there on May 9th, that is still celebrated as the day of the russian victory over germany after WW II. Most russians will have 3 days of vacation and you will find all cities decorated for that special occasion.
the lady with the mirror
The lady with the mirror is an interesting sculpture in the pedestrian area of Bolschaja Pokrowskaja and it is obviously one of the favorite places for the local people. Almost no lady, who would not take a look into the mirror of that lady as well, while passing by...
House of the children
"House of the children" is the name of this great Art-Nouveau"-building not far from the Kremlin. It has an interesting facade with nice mosaiques, but once again we did not have enough time to get any closer, so I could just take a few pics from a large distance.
