However, the main sights of Nizhny Novgorod Oblast are, of course, its ancient cities, light-colored monasteries and noble estates.

Arzamas (108 km from Nizhny Novgorod) is the third largest city in the region. It emerged in 1578 as a fortress and became a kind of a defensive barrier for the Russian state; it was famous for the local variety of onions and the breed of geese. Arzamas is included into the number of historical cities of Russia, it includes more than 30 monuments of history and architecture (Resurrection Cathedral, Transfiguration Cathedral, Magistrate, Shopping Acrade, church and monastery buildings that have preserved until our days).

Bolshoye Boldino (230 km awat from Nizhny Novgorod) was built on the Mordovian lands and has been known since the 16th century under the name of “Zabortniki” (the modern name was probably derivedfrom the personal Mordovian name Boldai). A.S. Pushkin came there three times (in 1830, 1833, 1834) and worked with a great result. The park and the poet’s favorite Luchinnik grove have been preserved, the estate with a complex of buildings has been restored – they havebecome the core of the state museum-reserve. Pushkin festivals are held here.



Diveevo (160 km away from Nizhny Novgorod) is probably named after the Mordvinian first settler Divey. It became famous thanks to the monastery where the relics of Seraphim of Sarov are kept.
