The former Rukavishnikov Manor located in Nizhny Novgorod (Verkhnevolzhskaya Embankment Street, 7) is an architectural and cultural monument and perhaps the most beautiful building in the city.

It was built by M.G. Rukavishnikov, the owner of the first steel plant in Nizhny Novgorod. His heir S.M. Rukavishnikov turned the estate into a magnificent complex with a house in the style of an Italian palazzo. Photos by: Ruslan Viktorov.

Gorky nuclear heating plant is an unfinished station for the production of thermal energy for heating Nagorny district of Nizhny Novgorod (former Gorky). Construction of the station was carried out in the 1980s, a few kilometers east of the city limits.

By the end of the 1980s, the station was finished by 85%, but due to public outcry and a growing budget deficit, the completion of construction of the station in the post-Chernobyl period was impossible, and the station was abandoned. Photos by Lana Sator
