Quite far from city center but you can reach it easily by public bus. And the bus in Nizhny is cheap (25 rubel one way per person) You need to walk about 500 meter from the bus stop. It is very quiet

This Monastery is very unique and unexpected in Nizhny Novgorod. We walked around the gardens and monastery. Lovely inside, they require you to cover your head and knees. There are shawls outside the door.
