Here I've found out how to add pictures.
Look, the first is a winter evening on the river Oka under ice. NizhnyNovgorod ( means 'new city lower than older city of Novgorod') is situated on the confluence of two large rivers the Oka and the Volga.
The second is a part of old center with the Kremlin ( a fortress with towers) (dates back to the XV century) and old churches. The city was founded in 1221.
I love living here, it's much quieter than in the capital, though moscovites call us provincials.
Well, we might design an international blogging project about native places. I teach at the civil engineering university and my students are 16-19 year-olds, some are from different parts of Russia. Would you like to join?
