Discovering Russia: Nizhny Novgorod

­The fourth largest city in the country, Nizhny Novgorod is almost as old as Moscow. 1.3 million people live here on the banks of the Volga and Oka rivers. In Nizhny Novgorod you can find lots of traditional Russian samovars, visit the GAZ automobile factory and a place where you can always burn rubber, whatever the weather!
