Known worldwide for its long tradition of producing wooden "matryoshka" dolls, Nizhny Novgorod Oblast occupies the heart of European Russia. Its history and economic development inextricably linked to the Volga and the Oka Rivers, the region became a major trading and transportation center with the founding of its eponymous capital in the 13th century. The city of Nizhny, as the locals call it for short, remains one of the country's undiscovered gems despite a rich cultural heritage and laid-back atmosphere. The region's other notable attractions include age-old monasteries, modern ski resorts, sprawling biosphere reserves, and elegant country estates.
