Cableway in Nizhny Novgorod - for lovers of height

It would seem that the usual cable car, on whichEvery day, residents of Bor come to work in Nizhny Novgorod, and then come back, but for visitors this is a whole tourist site that is mandatory for visiting. I did not become an exception and went there first. For some reason, since childhood I have almost puppy enthusiasm for cable cars and funiculars. Immediately remember eggs of grenoble and cable car to the Big Buddha in Hong Kongwhere I was also lucky to ride.

Cableway in Nizhny Novgorod

Cableway launched recentlyliterally in 2012. It is intended to connect the city of Bor and Nizhny Novgorod and thereby reduce the cost of transporting people. Previously, it was possible to get from Bor to NN only by car across the bridge, making a detour. No clue whether the idea has justified itself economically, and whether everyone can afford to ride a cable car to work every day, because, imagine, spend 90 rubles one way per trip. Yes, there are cards for 48 trips for 3090 rubles (64 rubles each), but it is even more expensive than the Moscow metro. I doubt that the inhabitants of Bor have Moscow incomes.

But okay, we are tourists, so we cabledmore interested in as a tour facility. And just in terms of entertainment, it turned out quite well, because not every city has such an attraction. I rolled with pleasure. The views are not bad, you can make beautiful photos, only the glass is a little worn out. But people with a fear of heights may not have to be sweet, because in the case of a strong wind the cabin starts to rock strongly, and sometimes even the cable car is stopped for some time and you hang there in obscurity. By the way, so the wind whistles there!

Nizhny Novgorod cable car has only 2 stations,in fact, between them and moving. The tourist has absolutely nothing to do on the other side, except for a ride on segway, if local guys continue to stand there and offer this service. Therefore, usually all the tourists just at the exit immediately turn around to the ticket office, buy a ticket and go back.
