Very beautiful walking street! A lot of street musicians, cafes, souvenir shops! A lot of people but I can’t say, that it is overcrowded

There are only two streets in Nizhniy where you can feel like a human: this one and Rozhdestvenskaya.

Your one stop street for food, cultural heritage, tourist attractions, music, theatre... All in one... Similar to Arbatskaya in Moscow... It's a walk- only street, no vehicles allowed... Cafes, restaurants and attractions on either side... Do check this out !

Love this street..it has shops, restaurants, bars, historical parts leading to the Kremlin. Traditional restaurants..and the usual American franchises. You would need a translator to read menus or know some Russian.

You can find people selling small stuffs, souvenirs or some painting along the street during spring, summer and autumn when the weather is good. Many good restaurants located along the street.

Its same like Bauman street in Kazan or a main street in Chelyabinsk, reflects the culture and ambiance of the eastern Russia crossing the Volga river. A small town with good food and ambiance on the street, a good evening walk crossing the street

A vibrant area where everyone enjoys whatever they like- if is an ice cream, a lemonade, a pub or the amazing street performers! The place is full of people coming up and down to and from Kremlin.
