About Nizhny Novgorod

The city that has kept its spirit of old times. Anyone who happens to walk along the streets of Nizhny Novgorod seems to be carried a hundred years ago. Narrow lanes with wooden houses perfectly fit into a modern megalopolis. Landmark of the city — Bolshaya Pokrovskaya street — is a multi-kilometer pedestrian zone that leads to the centre of Nizhny Novgorod — the Kremlin. Fortress walls stretch for two kilometers. There is the highest embankment situated there — with a beautiful view of the confluence of two great rivers — the Volga and the Oka, on two banks of which the amazing city is settled. The gorgeous landscape is impressive.

In 2011, we named our university after Russian patriot Kozma Minin, who is strongly associated with the city of Nizhny Novgorod and Russian history. Despite its long history, Minin University has a start-up feel as it moves to fulfill the educational standards of the new century.
