Trip Planner: Europe / Russia / Volga District / Nizhny Novgorod Oblast / Nizhny Novgorod / Chkalov Monument
Immerse yourself in breathtaking scenery and pay homage to the first man to fly directly from Europe to North America via the North Pole at Chkalov Monument. By flying his plane from Moscow to Vancouver, Washington, in 1937, Valery Chalkov pioneered the polar route, earning him the status of a hero in the Soviet Union. Chalkov was born in a town close to Nizhny Novgorod and after his premature death the city chose to honor him with an impressive monument on its kremlin. From the plateau on which the monument is located you can gaze over the confluence of the Volga and Oka rivers. Leading up to the site is an elegantly designed row of more than 500 steps, also dedicated to Chalkov. Make Chkalov Monument a centerpiece of your Nizhny Novgorod vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Nizhny Novgorod trip planner .

He chose the place on the hill himself, but not to himself, but to Gorky A.M., with his friend the sculptor. But I think the monument in his honor is more suitable, such an outstanding test pilot and discoverer should remember and be proud!
