Have you ever felt the power of two rivers at the same time? Strelka, the natural phenomenon where the rivers Oka and Volga meet, does not only offer a unique view, but the area is also home to a new stadium during the 2018 World Cup. Read more about the city’s planning for the biggest football festival.
The Strigino airport is located 23 km from the stadium, while the city center can be easily reached via shuttle within 40 minutes. We know that flying in and out on the same match day is fairly usual during the World Cup period: Should individual travelers or groups have to wait a few hours until their next flight, they can spend this time relaxing in the hotel complex Omega, which can be found on the airport territory.
WHAT TO VISIT DURING THE WORLD CUP
During the group phase, Nizhnij Novogorod is going to host four matches:
- Group F, 06/18/2018 Sweden – Korea
- Group D, 06/21/2018 Argentina – Croatia
- Group G, 06/24/2018 England – Panama
- Group E, 06/27/2018 Switzerland – Costa Rica
Should you have some free time to take a break from passionately supporting your team in the stadium, you can go on an adventurous tour of the traditional Soviet culture of the city, hidden within a unique landscape.
The Volga cable car is 3,660 meters long and has been honored in the European Book of Records. The trip takes 13 minutes and ends in a city called Bor. Visitors are able to admire beautiful views of nature and the shiny surface of the Volga River.

For those who are not into heights, there are several options to go on a sightseeing tour by boat, or just a relaxing walk down the Rozdestvenskaya street, which is also called an open-air museum due to its breathtaking architecture from the 18th century.
When it comes to culinary delights, you might want to taste the typical Ucha soup made from fish and vegetables.
Nizhnij Novogorod is a curious mixture of Soviet architecture and untouched nature, with numerous sights to discover for every taste.
