They call this the 1000 steps monument but in reality you only climb about 430 step all the way up. Is very nice to have a walk from the riverbank and climb these steps once you reach them, the view from above is really excellent....More

Lots of stairs, leading down towards the river side. It has pandus as far as I've noticed. Goes down from Chkalov monument.

If you are by the dockside and want to get to the Kremlin and tourist areas it’s with a walk along not particularly attractive roads or a hike up the stair case. It’s hard work but the views are great all the way up and...More

Gorgeous staircase. 475 steps to the top, so brace yourself =) Lovely boat cruises are available at the bottom of the stairs where you ride both rivers that meet nearby.

Well i counted 435 steps to the top. Get ready for a challange. The higher you go the better the view you see. I see nothing special about it but it had to be a way of punishment back then.

The stairs are worth the climb, the view from the top is breath taking. You will see the Volga and the Kremlin. Better to go in summer because in winter it will be icy and dangerous to go.

One of the important tourist spots in Nizhny Novgorod... The staircase goes down to Lower Nizhny Embankment which is another peaceful place worth seeing...

After a long walk around the Kremlin, step down to a lovely Volga embankment taking this staircase. Splendid view, nice photo shot spots and overall a place to visit in NiNo.
