News) . The project’s full release follows the wild success of Aldean’s history-making, multi-week 26th No. 1 “powerful duet”  (Rolling Stone ) ”If I Didn’t Love You” with Carrie Underwood that won him the coveted ACM Single of the Year, iHeartRadio Country Song of the Year, CMT Collaborative Video of the Year and earned him  Billboard  and GRAMMY nominations. “His Country superstar status”  (Variety)  continues to transcend with critics and fans alike as the new music makes its own mark for his hometown.

Aldean’s “That’s What Tequila Does” is currently at No. 8 on Billboard’s Country Airplay chart, and the track is included on Aldean’s 2022 double album Macon, Georgia . The project also features Aldean’s Country Airplay three-week chart-topper (and Grammy-nominated track) “If I Didn’t Love You,” with Carrie Underwood, as well as the three-week Country Airplay chart-topper “Trouble With a Heartbreak.”

Aldean’s raucous live shows have thrice earned him the Academy of Country Music’s entertainer of the year honor, and in 2019, he earned the Academy of Country Music’s Dick Clark artist of the decade award. Aldean previously told Billboard of the pride he takes in selecting openers for his tours–a few of his previous tour openers have included Kane Brown, Luke Bryan and Eric Church.

“We have a pretty good track record with that,” Aldean said. “There’s a chalk board in that room over there in my manager’s office. Every year we’ll have all the names on the chalk board, every artist on every label that is available, that we think is a possibility. We spend a lot of time making sure we get the best options we can, someone we think is going to work with our crowd and take off in the next year.”

Jason Aldean Announces ‘Back in the Saddle’ Tour Dates

  • By Daniel Kreps

Daniel Kreps

After a year off the road, Jason Aldean has announced his Back in the Saddle Tour, which kicks off this summer.

The country star revealed his return to touring Saturday night during his sold-out, livestreamed concert at the Bonnaroo Farm in Manchester, Tennessee. The gig marked Aldean’s first public performance since March 2020, when his We Back Tour was postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

“It’s been emotional being back on stage with my band for the first time in a year this weekend,” Aldean said in a statement.

“It’s made us all even more ready to get back to life as we all know it. Being on the road makes all of us – the band, the crew and me – happy and I haven’t felt this excited about going on tour in 15 years.”

Hardy and Lainey Wilson will serve as special guests on the Back in the Saddle Tour, which kicks off August 5th in Virginia Beach, Virginia and concludes three months later in Tampa, Florida on October 30th.

Jason Aldine Williams (born February 28th, 1977), better known by his stage name, Jason Aldean, is an American country musician from Macon, Georgia, who’s been making music since 2005.

The trajectory of Aldean’s career to date serves as a sharp example of the old adage that good things come to those who wait, although you could certainly forgive him for wishing that things had panned out a little more simply for him. He seemed to have the world at his feet in 1998; at the age of twenty-one, he signed a record deal with Warner-Chappell. He was subsequently, and repeatedly, dropped, and spent some years struggling to get his music career - something which had once looked like a dead-cert - off the ground. It meant that he didn’t manage to get his self-titled debut record out into the world until 2005, although it brought the success that his talent had always promised; “Why” became his first number one single on the U.S. Country charts, and the album itself would eventually go platinum in his homeland, too.

Since then, he’s released a further three platinum albums and another, November 2010’s “My Kinda Party”, that was certified triple-platinum. He’s a bona fide country titan now, with a slew of Grammy nominations and another Billboard number one position for his latest album, October 2010’s Old Boots, New Dirt, proof of his national stardom.

Live reviews

The concert was a 16th birthday present for my daughter. She has been listening to country music for only a year or so and none of her close friends share her interests in it. She didn't know that our seats were on the field and her face when we stopped and picked up the field wristband was priceless! What a great beginning for the night. I know that more than one song of Jason's has helped her through a few things over the past few months. It all started while she was reading a book a while back that had the words to Jason's song She's Country in it. It not only touched the heroine's heart but my daughter's too. Not yet a Jason fan, she decided to find out what other songs were his. The rest is history. The concert was truly a wonderful experience - from Tyler Farr, Florida Georgia Line and then.....JASON ALDEAN!! The fireworks that started the show and visuals throughout were great. A surprise duet with Kelly Clarkson (on video), great selection of songs; even a new song too. Loved his interaction with the lady and the t shirt during 1994. It was a great night with my daughter. We were sorry to see it end. Fortunately, Jason was gracious enough to do one encore. How about the encore??!!! We couldn't believe the incredible song choice - She's Country with a sky full of fireworks!!!!! It just doesn't get any better than that!!! Thanks Jason for stopping in Philly.

Any country fan is encouraged to see the charismatic Jason Aldean perform live to see an artist who adds real show to his country sound. Supported by a tight backing band who Alden continuously interacts, jams and thanks throughout the show, the Tennessee singer/songwriter is confident onstage to say the least.

The guitar string intro of 'Hicktown' receives massive cheers from the crowd as Jason launches into a barrage of hit singles in such quick succession that the first ten minutes of the show are one massive barn-storming blur. His last two albums have hit the top spot on the US Billboard chart so a percentage of his audience are made of new supporters and Jason caters to them with huge renditions of 'Night Train' and 'Take A Little Ride'.

Whilst he accommodates his older, loyal fans with the likes of 'Amarillo Sky' and 'Johnny Cash'. Either way, all the crowd seem to enjoy every song by the sound of applause throughout. 'She's Country', his usual set closer evokes massive roars of appreciation from the audience and spurs Aldean on further as his whole band before this massive country toe tapping swan song.

My husband my son and I went to Lakewood in Atlanta to see Jason Aldean, Florida Georgia line and Tyler Farr. The tickets were reserve pit. My 10 year old son got to high five Jason. It was an amazing and unforgettable night. The tickets were about $100 per person but to us was worth every dime. We took a lot of great pics. The staff at Lakewood were very helpful and nice. Jason Aldean is an awesome performer. He played all our favorite songs. He rocked the ATL. By far my favorite concert EVER! I hope I get to see him live again. The sound was great and Jason sounded perfect. I'm glad he picked Florida Georgia line to tour with him. I think it is a perfect combination. They even rocked out together at the end in an awesome jam session. If you get a chance, go see Jason!

This show was way beyond packed. I didn't know it could get that full at the sleep train. We had to park about a mile out and walk just to catch the very end of Thomas Rhett which was super lame. Wish we could have seen all of us his show. Also jason aldean put on a great show much better than super graphicy one last year - but the encore was really weird and really wanted to hear Texas was You but nope a few too many new boring songs. Jason Aldean and this tour is clearly the king of country right now.

AWSOME!!!! Fire works good music totally legit concert I would advise if you are a Jason aldean fan go see him live its even better sounds exactly how he does on the radio. He also performed all of his hits down to his earliest number ones and hits. light show "shes country"and "crazy town" had the most effects during the show flame throwers as well. Too much to tell.

Kane Brown was amazing and Jason Aldean rocked the house. Montage Mountain is still a disaster to get to. Must be run by the 3 Stooges. Took an hour to get up the hill, missed half the concert. You would think k after all these years somebody competent could figure out traffic slow. Never going back to that venue. How many years of constant complaints about traffic and parking before somebody cares Montage ?

What a fantastic show! 10/10, absolutely amazing. I will remember last night for a long time, as I had a blast and sung my heart out with Jason Aldean and his headliners a Thousand Horses and Thomas Rhett. The stage setup and lighting was phenomenal, and really added to the great experience of the show.

Absolutely amazing! I even brought a friend with me who doesn't even listen to country and she had a blast! She now loves Aldean just as much as me. She even made me stop at the store on the way home so she could buy all his albums they had! I got her hooked and I'm proud. :)

The concert was incredible! The only bad part was the amount of time it took toget into the concert and the amount of time it took to get out of the parking lot. Other than those two issues, the concert was great.

Jason Aldean gives update after suffering heat exhaustion and ending concert early

Jason Aldean said he's feeling "a lot better" after running off the stage early during a Connecticut show over the weekend due "a combination of dehydration and heat exhaustion" that abruptly ended his performance.

The country music star provided an update on his condition on July 16, saying he has been treated with multiple IVs after he cut his show short the previous night at the Xfinity Theatre in Hartford and did not return.

"Had a lot of people checking on me today after hearing about what happened last night at the show in Connecticut," he said in a video he posted on Twitter . "Just wanted to let you know thanks to everybody that’s called in checking, I’m doing fine.

"Just one of those things," he continued. "I was hot, I was playing golf all day yesterday and got to the show, and it was a combination of dehydration and just heat exhaustion."

Xfinity Theatre officials wrote on Facebook on July 16 that Alden was "experiencing heat stroke" during the performance.

"I hear a lot of stuff going around, heat stroke and all this stuff," Aldean said. "I don’t think it was quite that serious, but it was pretty intense last night at the show. Anybody that was at the show knows how hot it was.

"I knew it was coming, I was trying to get through as much of the show as I could, and eventually it was just like I knew it wasn’t going to happen, and I was trying to just get off stage and figure out what was going on."

Aldean and Xfinity Theatre announced the show will be rescheduled for a later date. It was the second night of his 41-city "Highway Desperado" tour.

"To everybody that came out to the show last night, thank you guys so much for being there," he said. "Obviously it’s not the way I wanted the show to end. Not what I was hoping for on our first week of the tour by any means."

Aldean played a show in Saratoga Springs, New York, on July 16, one night after the show was cut short in Hartford.

"Again, I apologize for cutting the show short, but we’ll come back and make it up to you and I’m feeling a lot, lot better so thank you guys for checking in," he said.

Aldean's rough night on stage comes as a record-setting heat wave has spread across much of the country.

“Toby Deserved A Great Tribute… Didn’t Want To Mess It Up” – Jason Aldean On His “Should’ve Been A Cowboy” Toby Keith Tribute At The ACM Awards

jason aldean tour news

There’s always time to talk a little Toby Keith .

The world lost the Big Dog Daddy back in February, and shortly after his passing, countless tributes poured in to honor Keith’s career and all of the great things he did both in music and outside of it. One of the most heartfelt tributes to Toby – and I know it sounds weird saying this – was when Jason Aldean took the stage at the 2024 ACM Awards.

There was some skepticism from country fans when they learned that Aldean would be taking on the weight of a tribute to Toby Keith, but all of those doubts were silenced when the “She’s Country” singer got into his stripped-down acoustic version of “Should’ve Been A Cowboy.”

For years, we’ve all drank and partied to that very song, and somehow Aldean turned it into a heartfelt tune that probably had a lot people in tears. The performance even garnered a supportive message from the Keith family that was posted on Toby’s social media shortly after Jason Aldean paid tribute to the Big Dog Daddy:

pic.twitter.com/AjwGvTVYTA — Toby Keith (@tobykeith) May 17, 2024

Though it’s been a couple of months since that moment, Aldean hasn’t talked all that much about it, until he joined The Bobby Bones Show earlier today. It was while the country star was on the phone with the show for an interview that Bones asked a very intriguing question about the mental space that Aldean had to get in for the tribute performance:

“You did the Toby Keith tribute, I was going to ask… I don’t know where you need to be mentally to have a good performance there because obviously it was sad. A lot of us knew Toby in different ways, and you had a relationship with Toby. Do you want to actually be feeling it? Or (do you) want to not feel it so you can pull off a performance?”

That’s a great question.

And Jason Aldean gave an equally great answer, explaining that though he felt the loss of Toby Keith as he was called upon to sing “Should’ve Been A Cowboy,” it was more important to present the fully together, stripped-down performance than show emotion:

“Yeah, I think it was a little bit more of (pulling off a great performance). I felt like Toby deserved a great tribute for the career he had. I knew it was going to be a big night for his family and people that were going to be there. To be honest, I just didn’t want to mess it up. I wanted to go out and give him a send off that he deserved.

Especially with us kind of changing the song up, you just don’t know how people are going to take that. You know what I mean? If they’re going to like it, not like it, or whatever. So for us, it was trying to do something cool and different and something to honor him and his family. His wife texted me that night after the show which was really the icing on the cake for me. If (she) approved, I’m cool.”

If he got the stamp of approval from Tricia, that pretty much says it all.

In regards to how people received it, Jason didn’t really get all that wrapped up in the response. As he explained, he and his band had an idea in mind of how they wanted to honor Toby Keith, and then they went out on stage and did it:

“I felt like we nailed it the way I wanted to do it. Now whether or not people were going to like the version? I don’t know. But I felt like what we were trying to do, I accomplished that and felt really good about the version that we did.”

Jason Aldean shares his support for Post Malone’s Country crossover: ‘I think he’s authentic to Country’

I t’s no secret that Post Malone loves a good Country collaboration. While he’s already joined forces with some of the genre’s finest like Blake Shelton , Chris Stapleton , and Morgan Wallen for his forthcoming album, there’s plenty more who say they’d be happy to join him for a track. That includes longtime Country superstar, Jason Aldean .

LISTEN NOW: Jason Aldean supports Post Malone’s Country crossover: ‘I think he’s authentic to Country’

“I think you can go back and look at interviews I’ve done for years sayin’ that I’d love to do something with him,” Aldean told Audacy’s Dina B . when asked if he’d ever consider a collab with Posty. “I kind of compare him to Kid Rock in the sense of, he came from more of that Pop world and I think he’s authentic to Country.”

While crossing over to the Country side seems to be the trendy thing to do these days, Aldean credits Post for his authenticity and doing it in a way that is earning the respect of Country fans everywhere.

“I think Country music fans see that and they understand that he actually is a fan and he does love this genre and I think they’ll accept him for that,” said Aldean. “I think they’re already doin’ that. What he’s doin’ with bein’ involved in Nashville and the community and the music and everything here — I think Nashville will definitely accept him with open arms.”

Post Malone announced his sixth studio album last month with a billboard in Nashville that read: “The name of the new Post Malone album is…” followed by the picture of a Ford truck tail light and several zeros. “Sup motherf***as… F-1 Trillion  August 16th” Post Malone  captioned his picture  of the billboard on his Instagram, which confirmed the announcement of his very first Nashville promoted album.

For more on Aldean’s thoughts on Post’s crossover, plus his latest number one, opening a bar in Florida, and how he got Donald Trump’s approval for his Halloween costume, check out his entire conversation with Kiss Country 99.9’s Dina B. above.

History of Nizhny Novgorod

Foundation of nizhny novgorod.

During the military campaigns of the Russian princes against the Volga Bulgaria, the place where the Oka River flows into the Volga was used as a gathering point for the Murom and Suzdal troops. In 1220, Grand Duke Yuri Vsevolodovich (the grandson of Prince Yuri Dolgoruky, the founder of Moscow) conducted a successful campaign against the Bulgars. After it, he “decided to strengthen this important place for Rus” and founded a town at the mouth of the Oka.

It was named Novgorod, which literally means “new town”. Later, the adjective “nizhny” (“lower”) was added to the name of the town in the Russian annals. This was probably done in order to distinguish it from the town of Novgorod (present Veliky Novgorod) and other Novgorods that existed at that time.

The founding of Nizhny Novgorod was the beginning of an active expansion of Russian influence in the Mordovian lands. Two white-stone churches were built in the fortress, including the Cathedral of the Archangel (1227) - evidence of the special role that the town had in the system of lands of Vladimir-Suzdal Rus. However, the Mongol invasion stopped further development.

Information about Nizhny Novgorod of the 13th century is extremely scarce. But it is known that after the invasion it revived relatively quickly. Nizhny Novgorod is constantly mentioned in Russian chronicles as a major political and economic center of North-Eastern Rus and a spiritual center of Orthodoxy in the Volga region. The town was often the object of conflicts between Moscow and Tver.

In 1392, the Moscow prince Vasily I received a jarlig for the Nizhny Novgorod Principality and captured Nizhny Novgorod. The final annexation of Nizhny Novgorod to the possessions of Moscow took place in the late 1440s.

More Historical Facts…

Nizhny Novgorod in the 16th-18th centuries

Under Ivan III and Vasily III, the town played the role of a border post and was a gathering place for military campaigns against the Kazan Khanate. In 1508-1515, the stone kremlin was built. After the capture of Kazan by Ivan the Terrible, the border role of Nizhny Novgorod became insignificant. At the same time, Nizhny Novgorod became the center of trade between Russia and the East and a large shipbuilding center.

In September 1611, during the Time of Troubles, the Second People’s Militia was organized in Nizhny Novgorod to fight the Poles who were able to establish control over Moscow. The militia consisted of detachments of townspeople, peasants of the central and northern regions of the Tsardom of Russia. The leaders were the Nizhny Novgorod merchant Kuzma Minin and Prince Dmitry Pozharsky (the monument to them is installed on Red Square in Moscow). In October 1612, the militia was able to completely liberate Moscow.

In the 17th century, a schism occurred in the Orthodox Church under Patriarch Nikon. It led to the formation of numerous settlements of Old Believers in the vicinity of Nizhny Novgorod. In 1695, during his Azov campaign, Peter I arrived in Nizhny Novgorod. In 1719, as a result of his administrative-territorial reforms, the town became the center of a separate Nizhny Novgorod Governorate. In 1722, setting off on the Persian campaign, Nizhny Novgorod was again visited by Peter I. Here he celebrated his 50th birthday.

In 1767, Nizhny Novgorod was visited by Empress Catherine II. During her stay in the town, she met the famous local mechanic and inventor Ivan Kulibin. After her visit, a new regular town plan was approved. The first town theater was built in 1798. Later, it became known as Nikolaevsky, in honor of Emperor Nicholas I.

Nizhny Novgorod in the 19th century

At the turn of the 18th and 19th centuries, Nizhny Novgorod became a major scientific and cultural center of the Russian Empire. In 1811, the population of Nizhny Novgorod was about 14,400 people. In 1817, the Makaryev Fair, the largest fair of the Russian Empire, was moved to the village of Kunavino (one of the districts of today’s Nizhny Novgorod). Before that, it was organized every year near the Makaryevsky Monastery, which burned down a year earlier. From that time on, it began to be called the Nizhny Novgorod Fair. Thanks to it, the rapid economic development of the town and adjacent villages began.

After Emperor Nicholas I visited the town in 1834, the large-scale reconstruction of Nizhny Novgorod began. In 1847, a water supply system appeared in the town and the first fountain was built. Private buildings in the Nizhny Novgorod Kremlin were demolished and new administrative buildings appeared in their place. A lot of new buildings, streets, boulevards, and gardens were built.

In 1849, a large industrial enterprise was founded in the village of Sormovo (another district of today’s Nizhny Novgorod). Later, it became known as the Sormovo plant. It was producing river steamers, various railway cars, steam locomotives, and trams. Thanks to the plant, Sormovo soon turned into a large village of workers. In 1862, the construction of the Moscow-Nizhny Novgorod railway was completed. In 1863, the population of the city was 41,500 people.

In 1896, the city hosted the All-Russian Trade and Industrial Exhibition. The radio receiver of the engineer A.S. Popov, the hyperboloid tower of the engineer V.G. Shukhov were demonstrated at the exhibition, as well as the first Russian car of the Frese and Yakovlev factories.

Nizhny Novgorod in the first half of the 20th century

In 1914, about 111,000 people lived in Nizhny Novgorod. In 1917, during the First World War, the Warsaw Polytechnic Institute was evacuated to this city, on the basis of which the Nizhny Novgorod Polytechnic Institute was created.

On October 7, 1932, Nizhny Novgorod was renamed Gorky due to the 40th anniversary of the literary and social activities of the writer Maxim Gorky. In 1933, the first permanent bridge across the Oka River was built. The railway bridge across the Volga was constructed too. Thanks to this, it became possible to go by rail through Gorky to the Urals and Siberia.

The 1930s were a period of rapid industrialization. In 1932, the largest industrial enterprise in the city was opened - the Gorky Automobile Plant (GAZ), an important object of the Soviet defense industry. In the 1930s-1940s, the city was even referred to as “Russian Detroit”. By 1939, the population of Nizhny Novgorod increased to about 644,000 people.

Every fourth resident of the Gorky region (about 822 thousand people) fought on the fronts of the Second World War. Of these, more than 350 thousand people did not return from the battlefields - they were killed, went missing or died from wounds in hospitals.

In June 1943, three large raids of German bombers were carried out on Gorky. The main target of air strikes was the Gorky Automobile Plant, which as a result was almost completely destroyed. It was rebuilt only in the middle of 1944. Over 500,000 wounded were treated in dozens of hospitals during the war years.

The city was an important center for the production of weapons. During the Second World War, every second Soviet car, every third tank and every fourth artillery piece were produced at Gorky’s plants. In total, about 38 thousand tanks, self-propelled guns, armored vehicles, 43 thousand mortars, 16 thousand aircraft, 22 submarines, 109 thousand cars, more than 85 thousand radio stations, as well as 101 thousand artillery pieces and 1,165 Katyusha multiple rocket launchers were produced in Gorky.

Nizhny Novgorod after the Second World War

In 1946, the first GAZ-M-20 “Pobeda” passenger car and the GAZ-51 truck left the assembly line of the Gorky Automobile Plant. In 1949, the construction of the monumental Chkalov Stairs connecting the Upper Volga and Lower Volga embankments was completed in the historic center of Nizhny Novgorod. On August 4, 1959, the resolution of the Council of Ministers of the USSR “On the closure of the city of Gorky for visiting by foreigners” was issued. In 1962, the population of Gorky exceeded 1 million people.

On January 18, 1970, a radiation accident occurred at the Krasnoe Sormovo plant. During the construction of a nuclear submarine, an unauthorized launch of the reactor took place. After working at prohibitive power for about 10-15 seconds, it partially collapsed. Hundreds of workers were exposed to the radioactive release. In total, over one thousand people took part in the liquidation of the consequences of the accident and were exposed to radiation.

In 1985, a subway was opened in Gorky. In 1980-1986, Andrei Sakharov, a world famous nuclear physicist, Nobel laureate, and activist, was in exile in Gorky to prevent his contacts with foreigners. In the early 1990s, the “closed city” status was lifted and the city became accessible to foreigners. On October 22, 1990, Gorky was renamed back to Nizhny Novgorod. In 1991, the population of the city reached its maximum - 1,445,000 people.

At the end of the 20th century, the information technology sphere began to actively develop in the city. In the 2000s, a transport problem arose because of the insufficient carrying capacity of the Nizhny Novgorod bridges connecting the lower part of the city and the upper one.

In February 2012, the Nizhny Novgorod Volga Aerial Tramway was opened. This 3661-meter-long gondola lift cable car connected Nizhny Novgorod with the town of Bor. Its daily passenger traffic is about 5,000 people. In 2013, the city electric train was launched - an alternative to the subway line from Sormovo to Moskovsky railway station.

Nizhny Novgorod hosted 6 matches of the FIFA World Cup 2018 . A new stadium was built, the old river port was demolished, a new park and embankments were created. Large-scale restoration of old streets and buildings took place, new museums were opened, hotels were built, and parks were reconstructed.

Nizhny Novgorod - Features

Nizhny Novgorod is located about 425 km east of Moscow, at the confluence of the two largest waterways of the European part of Russia - the Volga and Oka rivers. The city is divided by the Oka into two parts. The length of Nizhny Novgorod along the Oka is 20 km, along the Volga - about 30 km.

The climate in Nizhny Novgorod is moderately continental, with cold, long winters and warm, relatively short summers. The average temperature in January is minus 8.9 degrees Celsius, in July - plus 19.4 degrees Celsius.

A red deer is depicted on the coat of arms and flag of Nizhny Novgorod, which is a symbol of nobility, purity, life, wisdom, and justice. The City Day is celebrated on the 3rd Saturday in August.

In January 2019, Nizhny Novgorod was recognized as the best city in Russia in terms of quality of life. It took first place among Russian cities and 109th in the world in terms of quality of life. The rating was compiled by the site numbeo.com, which specializes in statistics on the cost of living and consumer prices in different countries of the world.

When compiling the rating, the purchasing power of the population, safety, health care, the cost of living, the ratio of real estate prices to the population’s income, traffic congestion, the level of environmental pollution, and climate were taken into account.

The main branches of the local industry are the production of cars and weapons, shipbuilding. Nizhny Novgorod is also one of the IT centers of Russia.

Nizhny Novgorod is a major transport hub. The city has a railway station, a river station, a cargo port, several berths for transshipment of goods. Strigino International Airport named after V.P. Chkalov offers regular flights to such cities as Yekaterinburg, Kazan, Kaliningrad, Moscow, Novosibirsk, Samara, St. Petersburg, Sochi, and a number of others.

Public transport in Nizhny Novgorod plays a very important role in ensuring the life of the city. At the same time, its work is hampered by the distribution of its population on the city’s territory, large daily migrations, a very high concentration of passenger traffic on the bridges across the Oka River, and the lack of an all-encompassing system of high-speed transport. There are municipal buses, fixed-route minibuses, trams, trolleybuses, the city train, and subway.

The tourist potential of Nizhny Novgorod is quite high. According to UNESCO, it is one of the most valuable historical cities in the world. In total, there are more than 600 unique historical, architectural and cultural monuments in Nizhny Novgorod, a variety of museums. The best time to visit Nizhny Novgorod is summer.

One of the alternative ways to visit Nizhny Novgorod is to take a river cruise along the Volga River. Travelers will find exciting excursions and meals in traditional Russian taverns. It will also be interesting to come during one of the many fairs or ethnographic festivals that are held in the city.

Main Attractions of Nizhny Novgorod

Nizhny Novgorod Kremlin (1508-1515) - a fortress in the historic center of Nizhny Novgorod and its oldest part, the main architectural complex of the city located on the right high bank, at the confluence of the Volga and Oka rivers. To date, all 13 towers of the Nizhny Novgorod Kremlin have been preserved or have been restored. The thickness of the wall at the base reaches 5 meters. There are exhibitions in the towers of the fortress; a section of the wall is open for tourists to visit.

In the past, there were several churches on the territory of the Nizhny Novgorod Kremlin. Today, only the Archangel Michael Cathedral has survived, built no later than the middle of the 16th century and rebuilt in 1628-1631 - the oldest surviving building in the kremlin. There is the grave of Kuzma Minin inside it.

An excellent view of the Volga River and Strelka (the confluence of the Oka and Volga) opens from the walls of the Nizhny Novgorod Kremlin. Here you can also see a collection of military equipment from the Second World War.

Nizhny Novgorod State Art Museum - one of the oldest museums in Russia, the largest museum of fine arts in the Nizhny Novgorod region. The Governor’s Palace on the territory of the Nizhny Novgorod Kremlin houses a permanent exhibition of Russian art and a collection of artistic silver.

In the House of the Merchant and Benefactor D.V. Sirotkin (Verkhnevolzhskaya Embankment, 3), an exposition of Western European art is presented and, separately, the painting by K.E. Makovsky “The appeal of Kuzma Minin to the citizens of Nizhny Novgorod” - one of the largest paintings on a historical theme in Russia (698x594 cm).

Chkalov Stairs (1943-1949) - a monumental staircase in the form of a figure eight in the historic center of Nizhny Novgorod. Connecting the Upper Volga (Verkhnevolzhskaya) and Lower Volga (Nizhnevolzhskaya) embankments, it is one of the longest stairs in Russia. It starts from the observation deck at the monument to Valery Chkalov (the famous Soviet pilot who made the first non-stop flight from the USSR to the USA via the North Pole), next to the St. George Tower of the Nizhny Novgorod Kremlin.

Bolshaya Pokrovskaya Street - the main street of Nizhny Novgorod built up with noble mansions of the past centuries. A large part of Bolshaya Pokrovskaya is reserved for the pedestrian zone and is analogous to the pedestrian Arbat Street in Moscow. There are a lot of historic houses, cafes, souvenir shops, boutiques, monuments, and sculptures here. The length of the street is over 2 km.

The building of the State Bank (Bolshaya Pokrovskaya Street, 26), resembling a medieval palace, is an outstanding architectural monument built in the Russian Revival style in 1911-1913. In the Museum of Old Equipment and Tools (Bolshaya Pokrovskaya Street, 43), you can see unique exhibits, hear their history, and even touch them.

Fedorovsky Embankment - one of the most beautiful embankments in Nizhny Novgorod and the best observation deck in the city. Everything is perfectly visible from this embankment: the old part of the city, the river station with a park, the Kanavinsky bridge - one of the oldest in the city, and, of course, the opposite bank of the Oka River with the Alexander Nevsky Cathedral, the confluence of the Oka and Volga. People also come here to watch the sunset.

Nizhny Novgorod Volga Aerial Tramway . This cable car, 3661 meters long, connects the high right bank of the Volga River, where the historic part of Nizhny Novgorod is located, with the town of Bor. It has the largest unsupported span over the water surface in Europe - 861 meters.

A one way trip during which you can admire the picturesque views of Nizhny Novgorod and the Volga River takes 15 minutes. It is better to use it in good sunny weather, because in windy weather, the movement of the cabins can be stopped. Sennaya Square on Kazanskaya Embankment.

Nizhny Novgorod State Museum of History and Architecture (1875-1877). Also known as the Mansion of S.M. Rukavishnikov, it is an architectural ensemble built in the eclectic style in the historic center of Nizhny Novgorod, one of the most important and famous architectural monuments of this city. Guided tours are held in the premises, allowing you to learn about the life of the former owners of the mansion, as well as look at the historical expositions of different years. Verkhnevolzhskaya Embankment, 7.

Main Palace of Nizhny Novgorod Fair - a luxurious building constructed in the forms of Old Russian architecture of the 17th century. Today, exhibitions of various formats are held here, as well as the multimedia exposition “Russia - my history” dedicated mainly to the history of Nizhny Novgorod starting from the Finno-Ugric peoples. Sovnarkomovskaya Street, 13.

Museum of the History of the Gorky Automobile Plant . The museum houses expositions telling about the history and development of the Gorky Automobile Plant. In total, there are over 40,000 exhibits. Here you can see a collection of Soviet vintage cars, which includes “Chaika”, “Volga”, the truck “GAZ-51”, and a lot of others. Lenina Avenue, 95.

Alexander Nevsky Cathedral (1868-1881) - the most noticeable sight of the lower part of Nizhny Novgorod, which can be seen from all observation decks of the upper city. The church, 87 meters high, was built on the site of the Nizhny Novgorod Fair at the expense of merchants, who wanted to perpetuate the visit of Emperor Alexander II. Strelka Street, 3a.

Church of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary (1696-1719) - one of the best examples of the Stroganov Baroque, an architectural monument of federal significance. From a distance, this colorful building looks like a sugar gingerbread with “candy” domes and decorated with stone flowers, pears and apples. Rozhdestvenskaya Street, 34.

Pechersky Ascension Monastery - one of the most interesting places in Nizhny Novgorod, where you can feel the spirit of the city. Most of the monastery buildings date back to the first half of the 17th century. A lot of beautiful photographs can be taken here. Privolzhskaya Sloboda Street, 108.

Limpopo Zoo - the first private zoo in Russia. More than 270 species of animals live here, 25 of which are listed in the Red Book of the Russian Federation. It is located on the territory of the Sormovsky Park on an area of 7.1 hectares. Yaroshenko Street, 7b.

Architectural and Ethnographic Museum-Reserve “Shcholokovskiy Khutor” .
