Travel to Nizhny Novgorod
Nizhny Novgorod is famous for its stone Kremlin, writer Maxim Gorky, the GAZ automobile factory and the patriots who liberated Moscow from the Poles - Minin and Pozharsky
Maxim Gorky, or Alexey Maksimovich Peshkov, a great proletarian writer, was not only born here, but also left a memory of himself: in the center are many apartments and houses where he lived, worked or read his works.
During the Tatar-Mongol invasion on the territory of Russia, Nizhny Novgorod was destroyed. There were about 17 destructive attacks on the city in its history. But Nizhny not only revived after each successive defeat, but also strengthened his position as the economic, political, cultural and religious center of Russia. Nizhny Novgorod became famous in the fight against the Polish invaders. In 1612 the Nizhny Novgorod militia acted, led by Kuzma Minin and Dmitry Pozharsky. Today, all of Russia annually recalls the feat of Nizhny Novgorod on the Day of National Unity - November 4. And on the place where the leaders of the militia gathered people to fight the invaders, there is a monument to the heroes of the people (by the way, the same monument adorns the Red Square in Moscow).
The geographical position of the city contributed to a strong position. Due to the excellent "transport interchange" of that time, the rivers along which they transported various goods throughout the country, the city won the status of "pocket of Russia" - the main center of trade. But it was already in the 18-19 centuries after the transfer of the Fair to Nizhny Novgorod.

In the language of Nizhny Novgorod, the two urban shores are called the "upper part" (it's also a "city" in the slang of many residents of the other bank) and the "lower part". The "upper part" located on the Dyatlovy mountains is the historical center of the city, "the place from where the Nizhny Novgorod land came from." The lower part of the city was built up later, and all the areas here, as a rule, appeared and rebuilt around certain industrial centers - plants.

The main objects of cultural life of the city are located in the upper part: theaters, exhibition galleries, museums, as well as the best universities of the city.
