The climate in the region is humid continental and it is similar to the climate in Moscow, although colder in winter, which lasts from late November until late March with a permanent snow cover.

The Upper city is the old historical part of Nizhny Novgorod, whereas the Lower city is larger, newer and consists of more industrial districts. The Upper city is administratively divided into three districts (rayons): * Nizhegorodsky (the central historical part, plus the part along the river Volga) * Prioksky (is situated along the river Oka) * Sovetsky The districts of the Lower city: * Kanavinsky (Kananvino) * Sormovsky (Sormovo) * Avtozavodsky (Avtozavod) * Moskovsky * Leninsky Get in thumb 250px the Fair (Image:Nizhny Novgorod Fair 2010.jpg) By train Trains are probably the best and the most convenient way to get to Nizhny Novgorod. Most of the Trans-Siberian (Trans-Siberian Railway) trains (including the legendary train No.1 between Moscow and Vladivostok and the train from Moscow to Beijing) pass via Nizhny Novgorod. By train '''from Moscow''': * The fastest option is to take Sapsan that will carry you for 3h 55m (departure from Moscow's ''Kursky station'' twice per day, one early at the morning, the other at evening). * A bit slower is ''Lastochka'' train that takes 4h 5m, once per day, departure from Moscow ''Kursky'' station at about 14:00, from Nizhny at about 19:00. * Burevestnik train, once per day, morning from Nizhny, second half of the day from Moscow ''Kursky'' station, 4h 19m. * Comfortable overnight trains departing from Moscow's ''Kazansky station'' and from ''Yaroslavsky station'', departure at about midnight, arrival at about 07:00. * Of course it is possible to use other trains going eastward departing from various Moscow's stations. By train '''from Saint Petersburg''': the night train "Volga" departs each evening and arrives to NN next morning. There are also direct train connections with Kazan, Samara, Kirov, Yaroslavl and other cities of the region (there are mainly night trains). As well as with Vladivostok, Beijing, Ulaanbaatar, Irkutsk, Astrakhan, Simferopol, Novorossiysk and many others. You can look up the schedule of train and buy the tickets at Russian railroads web site type exactly "N.Novgorod" into the station name field. '''Suburban trains''' from Nizhny Novgorod go to most of the other towns within approx 200 km and sometimes more, most notably Arzamas , Balakhna, Dzerzhinsk, Gorokhovets and Murom. Some of the train are express suburban trains that are rather fast and have only a few stops, some are slower and have stops every 5-10 km. '''The train station''' is located in the Lower city not far from river, and is a major hub for the in-city public transport. The main station buildings are located on the south side of tracks, there is also a suburban ticket office at the north side. A metro (subway) station is located under the square in front of the station buildings, there are also bus and tram stops on both sides, although the tram ones are a bit more difficult to find. In the train station itself, a must see is the main hall with two soviet-style mosaics on the walls, one of which symbolizes the life of soviet people in Nizhny and Moscow. Also note the huge chandelier in the same hall. By plane The international airport of Nizhny Novgorod (GOJ) is situated in Strigino district in about 30–40 minutes by taxi from city centre (if there are no traffic jams). The airport is very small, although there plans for reconstruction. There are several daily flights to Moscow, also there are connections with Baku (Azerbaijan) (Baku), Frankfurt (Germany) (Frankfurt), Kaliningrad, Novosibirsk, Prague (Czech Republic) (Prague), Surgut, Saint Petersburg, Yekaterinburg, Yerevan (Armenia) (Yerevan), and some other cities along Volga such as Kazan or Samara. Most of the flights are operated by the different Russian airlines, but flights to Frankfurt are by Lufthansa, and to Prague by Czech Airlines. You can get to the airport by buses number 11, 20, T-29, T-46 (20 rubles in July 2012) or by taxi (normal price from city centre will be around 700-800 roubles or $20-30 if pre-booked). By car Nizhny Novgorod is situated on M7 E30 road. The road is quite ok and usually takes about 6 hours to get to Nizhny from Moscow while observing speed limits (although many Russians can make it 4 hours by speeding much). However the traffic jams in the suburbs of Moscow can make the way longer. By bus There are regular state-owned daily bus connections with Moscow (from Kanavinskaya bus station in Nizhny to metro Schelkovskaya in Moscow) but the buses are very slow (it can take up to 10 hours with several stops in all the towns along the road) and rather uncomfortable. There are also faster private daily and overnight buses between Kursky railway terminal in Moscow and Moskovsky railway terminal in Nizhny Novgorod. Also there are state-owned and private buses to many nearby cities. There are several bus stations in Nizhny, but for the buses going away from Nizhny Novgorod oblast only two are used: Kanavinskaya bus station near the railroad station for buses going North and West, and the main bus station (''Avtovokzal'') near pl. Lyadova for the buses going South and East. By boat River cruises down the Volga operate during the summer months (early May to end of September). Dozens of boats operated by different companies run from Moscow to Astrakhan and back. One way or return cruises may be reserved to from practically any city along the Volga. Get around Public transport 2GIS site has an up-to-date (and often updated) information on all transport routes, together with route planner: (in Russian, but just click on the map and on the pop-up use "Маршрут отсюда" for source and "Маршрут сюда" for destination). Underground (Metro) File:Nnov-en.png thumb 350px Metro in Nizhny Novgorod The metro is probably the best way to avoid traffic jams (and the cheapest, as it costs less than say a bus), but only if you are lucky to have the place you need served by the system! In fact, with only two lines, the metro covers only a small part of the city (having only one station in the Upper city!), and therefore is of limited use. This is of no surprise, because the first line was built in late Soviet times to serve the Nizhny Novgorod car plant located in Avtozavod district; then the Soviet union dissolved, and only several stations have been built since. Nevertheless, the Nizhny Novgorod metro today is the third largest in Russia. The two lines are connected in Moskovskaya station, above which the railroad station is located. The first line goes from Burevestnik to Moskovskaya. The second one goes from Park Kultury via Moskovskaya, then across the river to Gorkovskaya in the city center. Several stations are going to be built. Working hours: 05:15-midnight. Price: 16RUB. You by a special coin (note its unusual shape with a hole in center), and then push it into the slot on the turnstile. Inside the metro, it is worth seeing the Moskovskaya station, which is the only metro station in the ex-USSR having four tracks and two platforms in one underground hall and even a pedestrian bridge connecting the platforms. Also note the newly built Gorkovskaya station with its mosaics on walls depicting most Nizhny Novgorod sights. Tram Nizhny Novgorod's streetcar (tram) system first opened in 1896 and now there are about 20 streetcar routes operating in the city. Unfortunately, streetcar lines are gradually removed, as the city government renovates one street after another; so take that tram while it's still running! However, beware of unpredictable travel times, as locals often park their cars so close to the tram rails that a tram can not pass (this is especially a problem on the narrow streets in city center); also there are sometimes road accidents on the tracks blocking the trams. Trolleybus Extensive network of 25 lines. Buses About 80 lines of government-owned buses. The fares are continually increasing; they were 20 RUR as of August 2012. Also about 80 lines of privately-owned buses calles ''marshrutnoe taksi'' (literally ''routed taxi'') or ''marshrutka''. These are generally smaller than government-owned buses and usually (but not always) feature a letter "T" before the number of route. Note that they have different routes from that of government buses, so a bus and a ''marshrutka'' with the same number may have slightly different (or, sometimes, completely different) routes. As of August 2012, the fares are the same as on state-run buses. Note also that in contrast to other public transport, ''marshrutkas'' do not stop at every stop; to indicate your intention to exit a ''marshrutka'', you should press a special button above the door, and to indicate your intention to enter an oncoming ''marshrutka'', you need to wave your hand. Both buses and ''marshrutkas'' are really overcrowded at rush hours; other means of transport suffer from this less. Payment On surface public transport (trams, trolleybuses, buses and ''marshrutkas'') you are expected to pay within one stop after you enter, the fare is fixed for one ride. Some vehicles (almost all trams and trolleybuses and about a half of buses and ''marshrutkas'') have a special man called ''konductor'' who will come to you, take money and give a ticket; if there is no ''konductor'', you should
