Welcome to Nizhny Novgorod

Aside from stirring views out over the river (including the possibility of a high-altitude cable-car ride), 'Nizhny' offers several very good museums, and Sakharov's former apartment is home to a quirky exhibition on the great man's life. The port offers the possibility of river excursions to nearby towns.

Day tour to Suzdal and Vladimir from Nizhny Novgorod

  A driver will meet you at your hotel in Nizhny Novgorod and take you to the railway station where you will get a high-speed train to Vladimir. At Vladimir Station another driver and your guide will meet you to take you on an excursion around Vladimir and tell you about its history and show you its beautiful buildings.  After the excursion you will have lunch in Vladimir (not included in the price) and then have a transfer to Suzdal which is just 35km from Vladimir, but you will feel as though you have travelled back in time a couple of centuries. Here you will visit the most famous sites in the city and then have one hour of free time in the city before being driven back to Vladimir to catch another high-speed train back to Nizhny Novgorod.  You should be back in your hotel by around 22:30, although it is possible to have a shorter excursion if you wish to get back to Nizhny Novgorod earlier.
