About the city

The city of Nizhny Novgorod was established at the confluence of two Russian great rivers, the Volga and the Oka, by Prince Yuri Vsevolodovich in 1221 as a stronghold to defend Russian border. Nizhny Novgorod is one of the largest industrial cities in Russia today. The engineering and metal-fabricating industries play a leading role. Car, shipbuilding and arms industries form the bulk of production. Its 6 universities, 4 academies, more than 5 institutes and a conservatoire managed to preserve the prestige of their academic programmes despite all political and economic developments in Russia. There are now more than 50 higher education institutions and branches in Nizhny Novgorod in total.
