My city - Nizhny Novgorod

posted by ideas4home, Jun 27, 2013 1:26 AM — 0 comments

I was born in Nizhny Novgorod and I am proud of it. When I was small I didn't understand that I lived in a very old, famous, glorious city with reach history. Later, when I began to walk by the streets of our beautiful city and to visit our museums I understood that I was lucky to live here. Nizhny Novgorod plays an enormous role in my life. The fact is that I am Nizhny Novgorod born and bred. My father, and all his forefathers were born and lived in Nizhny Novgorod. For example, his grandmother with her family lived in Pokrovskaya street in a small old house, which was destroyed not long ago. So, some years ago I realized, that I wanted to know more about my native city. I began to read different books about it and to watch old photos made by Dmitriev and Karelin. Now I want to tell about my native city, the point of pride of our townspeople.



My native city is famous for its architectural monuments. They are mostly situated in old Nizhny Novgorod, in historically formed center of the city. Apart from the well-known Kremlin, built in the 16th century, there are also some dwelling houses, which are still intact. There are an extremely beautiful Archangel Cathedral, Petchersky and Blagoveschhenye cloisters (the 17th century). The Rozhdestvenskaya (Stroganov) Church is a unique monument of Russian architecture, it was erected in 1719. Buildings, representing different architectural styles such as baroque, neo-classicism, pseudo-Russian and constructivism are adjacent to each other in the streets of old Nizhny. The mansion of Rukavishnikovs on the Otkos, the Drama theatre and the bank in Bolshaya Pokrovka street are of extreme interest.
