The old city is located on the high ground, so the city is divided into fragments by various cliffs. The Kremlin is located at the top of the high ground. The eastern half is a gentle slope, which is integrated with the city, while the western part is protected by natural cliffs like a trench. It looks like a castle. Some government offices in Nizhny Novgorod are still working inside, but visitors can come and go freely. As soon as you enter the Kremlin gate, you can see various heavy weapons of the World War II era such as military monuments and aircraft cannons placed in the open air.

This is the place where each storyline in Gorky's "Childhood" takes place.
Although Gorky focused on rendering his "distressed childhood" in his works, according to the interior furnishings, it seems that although Gorky's family background is inadequate, it is still more than enough, and he has not fallen into abject poverty.
After visiting Gorky’s childhood wooden house, he went to the old residence in the east of the city in the snow.
