    Nizhny Novgorod Region

Nizhny Novgorod is a pleasant city with a bustling Kremlin, museums, churches and cathedrals, and lively scenes of the Volga river embankments. Nowadays, Russias third largest city is mostly known for its rich historical and cultural background and pro-business government that actively follows new reforms. The city has always been an economic centre and Russias wallet.

Despite its rich historical heritage, Nizhny Novgorod tends to be better known in the West as the city to which Andrei Sakharov, "father of the H-bomb", then later awarded the Nobel Prize for his work defending human rights, was exiled.

The district is known for traditional crafts including the Matryoshka dolls (a doll inside a doll inside...), cutting boards, and utensils painted in gold and bright colors on a black base known as Khokhloma ware after a town 100km north of Nizhny Novgorod.

A great number of historical, architectural and cultural monuments has remained in the City, what gave premises to UNESCO for inclusion of Nizhny Novgorod in the list of 100 cities constituting world historical and cultural value. In the course of centuries of its history Nizhny Novgorod has been playing a noticeable role in the country's life.
