The Chkalov Stairs is a monumental flight of steps in the center of Nizhny Novgorod, connecting Minin and Pozharsky Square, the Upper Volga and the Lower Volga embankments. It was built by the architects Alexander Yakovlev, Lev Rudnev and Vladimir Munts. It is the longest staircase in Russia. The staircase starts from the monument to Chkalov, near the St. George's Tower of the Kremlin. It is built in the form of a figure of eight and consists of 560 steps, if you count it both sides. The number of steps from the bottom to the top is 442 on the right. In the intersections of the side slopes there are two observation platforms. At the bottom of the stairs is a monument to the boat "Hero", which is located at the Lower-Volga embankment.

As you walk through the north grounds of the Kremlin, you'll encounter this beauty of a 1800s staircase. Simply stunning.
The most amazing view in Nizhny Novgorod. Don't miss it if you're in Nizhny.
Nice historical place. Good exercise too. Отличная лестница - много ступеней
Beautifull sight on Volga River. 430 steps to the top :-)
Good place, good view, good place for sport running))
Quite impressive and spectacular. There is a picturesque view from the top of the stairs.
Beautiful place. Don't miss the chance to go upstairs from the river side
Beautiful Views of the river, and a great place to take pictures by the statue
These realy long stairs are worth climbing and there is a very pleasant view to river and Kremlin and the monument to our hero flying officer V.Chkalov.
one of the most beautiful landmark in my trans-sib journey.. interestingly in the opposite of the river it was a green forest. intended to be kept as the vista of this grand stairs?
Very nice view on a Volga and Oka rivers. You can see 20 km ahead because the monument is placed on a very high hill.
