Nizhny Novgorod is best known for the world famous author Maksim Gorky, who was born in the city, and later gave name to it during the Soviet era. Since the Soviet era and forward, Nizhny Novgorod has been home to numerous automobile, submarine and fighter jet manufacturing plants, and its central location on the Volga River makes it an important city for the country. Because of the military factories, it was a so-called closed city during the Soviet time, but this summer football fans from across the globe get to enjoy the mysterious and enigmatic Russian city.

Nizhny Novgorod Stadium

At the end of 2014, the Russian Ministry of Sport signed a contract with PJSC Stroytransgaz for the design and construction from scratch of the 45,000-capacity Nizhny Novgorod stadium. The total estimated cost of the stadium was 17.9 billion rubles, around €254 million, and the plan was to use the stadium for not only football, but also competitions in other sports, as well as other major events and concerts.  Construction of the stadium began in early 2015, and the design was inspired by the nature of the Volga region.

It is fair to say not everything has gone to plan as the local government and contractors would have liked.  In October 2017 a large fire broke out, for which fire crews were urgently sent to put out the blaze, luckily no one was injured.  The reason for the fire was later confirmed that a welding spark ignited some polystyrene debris but authorities attributed the blaze to lax safety regulations.

The Nizhny Novgorod Stadium is situated within one of the region’s most picturesque locations formally named as Strelka. This was historically a place of warehouses and industry, where goods were unloaded and loaded for access to the Vogla and beyond.  The stadium is located just a few minutes from the very centre of the city, on the confluence of the of the Oka river in the Volga in the north and east, the beautiful Aleksandr Nevsky Cathedral rests one side of the stadium in the south whilst a new large modern shopping centre is located to the west with plentiful parking facilities.

Transport facilities in area will gain a huge boost prior to the opening of the stadium as the city plans to Open the metro station Strelka before the world cup to better manage the crowd flow, and make travelling to and from the stadium more time efficient.

Nizhny Novgorod’s History

Founded in 1221, Nizhny Novgorod is located 292 Miles (474 Kilometres) east of Moscow. In the early years, Nizhny Novgorod was regarded as an important frontline city guarding Russia from the mighty empires from the east. By 1552, came the conquest of Kazan by Ivan the Terrible and this finally gave the principality of Moscow its independence from the Mongol Golden Horde and therefore relegating the role of Nizhny Novgorod as a frontier town to insignificant.

In 1932, the city saw the construction of the Gorky Automobile Plant, which was to become the largest of its kind in the Soviet Union. In the same year, the city received the name Gorky, which it was known as until 1991. To this day, people still refer to the city as Gorky.

As mentioned earlier, Gorky was the home of a significant amount of the Soviet military industry. It was, for example, in Gorky that the first Russian atomic bomb was designed, and during World War II, the city was the biggest producer of war equipment. For the same reason, it was a closed city to foreigners, in order to keep the secrets safe.

Football in Nizhny Novgorod

The city has had quite a turbulent football history in the past Century. In terms of success, there hasn’t been a single league title or cup win to its name and not really too much for the ordinary Nizhny Novgorod Football fan to get excited about.  

Despite the lack of trophies, the city is the birthplace of a few good football palyers. The most notable is Denis Cheryshev, who now plays for La Liga side Villarreal. However, Cheryshev moved to Spain with his faither at the age of six, so Nizhny Novgorod can hardly claim the reward for his succes.

Arguably one of the city’s most positive football achievements was FC Lokomotiv Nizhny Novgorod reaching the Intertoto Cup semi final in 1997, where they suffered a 1-0 defeat to Halmstad (Sweden).  Lokomotiv later suffered financial trouble and therefore was disbanded in 2006. 

The city’s other big club, FC Volga Nizhny Novgorod, has also become known for it’s mis-management. After the 2013-2014 season, they were relegated to the second level once more, and two years later the club went bankrupt and closed. 

Second tier side FC Olimpiyets Nizhny Novgorod are currently the only major team in the city and are due to make the New Nizhny Novgorod Stadium their home in 2018 after the world cup.  Ironically, the club was formed to be the farm club of Volga.

What to do in Nizhny Novgorod

With Nizhny Novgorod’s history, there’s obviously a lot to see and do in the city. The Chkalov Staircase, the longest staircase in Russia is one of these things. Once you reach the top of the staircase, you get the perfect view over the city, which has made it a popular spot for both tourists and locals. From here you can catch both the Volga/Oka River, the Kremlin, the Nizhny Novgorod Stadium along with a vast view of the Russian Hinterland.

Another must see is the aforementioned Nizhny Novgorod Kremlin. Every visitor should take the time to walk around the historic walls and paths of the building, which is both the historical and modern heart of the city.

While scouting the area around the stadium, one should also visit the Aleksandr Nevsky Orthodox Cathedral which, as stated earlier, is located only meters away. It is free to enter, but respect should of course be paid as a visitor as it is a working cathedral.

Another notable tourist attraction to mention within the city includes the New Nizhny Novgorod Cableway which at 3660 metres long was built to carry passenger across the Volga River to Bor on the southern side of the city.  Although the the cableway was partly built to serve as a tourist attraction, it is also an important piece of infrastructure for many locals who use it to enter the city from the southern part, where there is no permanent bridge.

And finally a trip to Nizhny Novgorod could not be complete without a visit to the Bolshaya Pokrovskaya Street. Pokrovskaya is lined full of restaurants, bars, cafes, shopping possibilities, and it is thus a perfect place to kill time. In the summer the atmosphere is similar to that of Covent Garden in London with Street entertainers and Busker’s lining the 1 kilometer route which leads directly to the Kremlin.  Attractions on the street include the Trade Union House, State Bank, Dramatic Theatre and the Educational Theatre.
