The City if Nizhny Novgorod

The city of Nizhny Novgorod was established at the confluence of two Russian great rivers, the Volga and the Oka, by Prince Yuri Vsevolodovich in 1221 as a stronghold to defend Russian border. Nizhny Novgorod was a capital city of the Nizhny Novgorod-Suzdal principality, one of the strongest in Russia during the period of feudal fragmentation in the Middle Ages. Owing to its favourable geographical position Nizhny Novgorod became a big commercial and cultural hub. Makariev fair was moved to Nizhny Novgorod in 1817. The middle 19th century saw its Volga shipping company succeed. Nizhny Novgorod was connected by rail to Moscow. Throughout the 20th century, Nizhny Novgorod (named Gorky in the Soviet Union) was developing into a big industrial city. It has its own administration and hosts a regional government.
