The Kremlin at Nizhny Novgorod

posted by ideas4home, Jul 6, 2013 3:28 AM — 1 comments

The Kremlin at Nizhny is set high on a hill, an instantly obvious place for a fort and one of Russia’s most imposing defensive structures. The Khan of Kazan apparently thought the same and he hurriedly attacked while the Nizhny kremlin was under construction, but its fortifications were already too strong and the Khan was defeated.

The Cathedral of Archangel Michael sits on the hillside along the northern part of the kremlin with wonderful views out over the two rivers. Most of the buildings within the kremlin walls, however, are administrative type buildings that mostly house offices now though one houses the very nice Nizhny Novgorod State Art Museum.
