The citys history is inseparably linked with the history of this country. Arzamas was at the hub of activity in the Time of Troubles, during the revolt of Stepan Razin.

The city is located in the centre of the right-bank area of the Novgorod Region, on the hillside by the right bank of River Tesha (the right inflow of Oka) 110 km away from Nizhni Novgorod and 410 km away from Moscow, at the junction of trunk-railways.
