If you want to go out of town and take a walk, but you have already been to Peterhof, you can go to Oranienbaum.


You can go on an excursion to the Goncharov Center-Museum, the Museum-Estate of Urban Life, the Balalaika Museum, and the Small Shop. Of course, the city has many attractions associated with Lenin. You can visit the house where he was born and the house owned by the Ulyanov family in the 1880s. In summer it is nice to take a walk in one of the parks of Ulyanovsk — for example, the park of culture and recreation «Victory», the parks «Friendship of Peoples» or «Black Lake». If you want to relax more actively, you can arrange a boat or Sapa trip along the Volga.

Nizhny Novgorod

In the city itself, of course, you cannot pass by the Kremlin, where you can see historical buildings and enjoy the view of the Volga. Weather permitting, you can ride the cable car across the river to Bor and back. This «attraction» is readily used by both locals and tourists. Of the museums, one can recommend the Artistic, Technical, Gorky Museum-Apartment, the Russian Museum of Photography, from the unusual ones — the art-apartment «Kladovka» and the Museum of Illusions.
