What a great place to take pictures! Great views of the stairs, the Volga river and sunset views. Close to dozens of other attractions.

The monument itself isn't anything special, but the story behind the Soviet airman V. Chkalov is very impressive. There is a legend that the statue has its back turned to Vancouver.

You wanna go and check this statue because of the view. It's amazing. You can see the rivers and the walls of Kremlin. I liked this spot in Nizhny Novgorod.

This monument is your reward for climbing up the lenghty Chkalov staricase. It's huge and facing the city rather than the river. Makes for nice pictures and on weekends there's many brides around, taking their pictures here.

Chalklov the first Russian to fly non stop to us is remembered here. His stature is imposing... From this place you can view both rivers Volga and Oka. This is very close to the staircase. Sad to see Chalklov died at a very young age...More

Such a good place to visit. If you are in Nizhniy Novgorod at first you have to visit this monument. Nice, clean square around and wonderfully panorama will make your heartbeat faster.

Just fuel up yourself and your camera before you head for this place. Every step you d feel like clicking yourself as the confluence of two rivers in the background makes for a perfect setting.

Very beautiful view. Cannot leave N.Novgorod without a photo from this point. Chkalov himself is made very well and the memorial is great.

Very convenient - you can make a lot of pictures on the Volga, on Chkalov Staircase, historic buildings, the Kremlin, and the monument itself.

you can end up your sightseeing over here, as it gives a perfect view of the two rivers, or you can go down the stairs and have some walk along the river promenade.
