History of Nizhny Novgorod

Founding of Nizhny Novgorod

Nizhny Novgorod was founded in 1221 by the Grand Duke of Vladimir Yury Vsevolodovich
Grand Duke of Vladimir Yury Vsevolodovich
in a highly advantageous place, at the confluence of the two great rivers, the Volga and the Oka. Nizhny Novgorod was laid in the 13th century as a fortress town in the series of successful journeys taken by Russian grand dukes in the north-east direction. The founding of Nizhny Novgorod finished the long-time struggle of Russian nation for the lands in the Volga River region, let Rus dominate at the crossing of the two most important waterways of antiquity, and predetermined the further progress of Nizhny Novgorod as the most important economical and political centre of Russia.
