The Kremlin



The Nizhny Novgorod Kremlin marks the central part of the ancient town which occupies a relatively small territory on a hill dominating the confluence of the Oka and the Volga rivers. The first wooden fortress was built here in 1221. At the time of the Nizhny Novgorod Principality building of the stone walls began. The walls that you now see date as far back as 1500 - 1511. Construction of the Kremlin wall on the steep hillside was initiated by the Italian architect Peter Friazin. During the XVI century the Kremlin endured four sieges. Originally the Kremlin wall was about 1.5 miles long, just some 200 yards less than that of the Moscow Kremlin. Eleven of the original thirteen towers have survived. There are also several picturesque buildings within the Kremlin; the House of Soviets is situated to the right of Dmitrovskaya Tower's entrance, the Governor's house (from 1840 to 1917), which houses the Art Museum with a rich collection of icons, paintings and sculptures.
