Trip Planner: Europe / Russia / Volga District / Nizhny Novgorod Oblast / Nizhny Novgorod / Verhnevolzhskaya Embankment
Enjoy a panoramic perspective at Verhnevolzhskaya Embankment, one of Nizhny Novgorod's main waterfront promenades. Choose a path that goes right next to the Volga River, or opt for the one farther up the hill. Either way, you'll find that it's a good chance to stretch your legs, so go for a casual stroll, or lace up your sneakers and hit the pavement. Be sure to glance across to the other side of the river, where you'll be rewarded with a sweeping view of the forested bank and walls of the Nizhny Novgorod castle. Arrange your visit to Verhnevolzhskaya Embankment and discover more family-friendly attractions in Nizhny Novgorod using our Nizhny Novgorod trip planning app.
