Around the walls of the Nizhny Novgorod Kremlin there is a well-maintained path, it is a pity there are few benches, but small lamps. Well, when I was under repair, most of the circuit trails were closed.

The original Kremlin of the XIII century was wooden, stone, the Nizhny Novgorod Kremlin began in 1515, when the need arose to protect Moscow Russia from the Kazan Khanate. The length of the walls is 2 km, 13 towers. The fortress was repeatedly besieged, but it was never taken. Hence, the Nizhny Novgorod militia, headed by citizen Minin and Prince Pozharsky, began a liberation campaign against Moscow.
