MIL OSI Translation. Region: Russian Federation –
Dear citizens of Nizhny Novgorod and residents of the country! From the bottom of my heart I congratulate you on the anniversary of Nizhny Novgorod!
It is difficult to imagine that a little more than thirty years ago, Nizhny Novgorod, then Gorky, had the status of a closed city. On the contrary, in terms of atmosphere and sensations, Nizhniy is one of the most open and hospitable places in Russia these days. The anniversary and the transformations associated with it arouse great interest and desire to see with our own eyes everything that is being done and has already been done in 2021.
It is very important that Nizhny is changing without betraying itself, without losing its identity. Eight centuries of the city’s history have contained many glorious moments. In the past of Nizhny Novgorod, the patriotism of the Nizhny Novgorod militia and the business acumen of the merchants, the scope of the Volgar rivermen and the intellectual power of scientists-inventors were intertwined.
Today Nizhny is one of the IT capitals of Russia, the most important cultural center and a place where the historical urban environment is carefully developed. In its diversity and versatility, Nizhny Novgorod is a reflection of true Russia. Here you can feel the strength of the Russian character and the spiritual wealth of our Motherland.
In the spring and summer of this year, the city looked like a big construction site. The program of transformations for the anniversary affected all the most iconic objects: the Nizhny Novgorod Kremlin and the Fair, the Chkalovskaya staircase and embankments. For the first time, it will be possible to walk along the combat path of the Kremlin walls or walk along the territory of Strelka, where the Oka and Volga meet. Switzerland is being transformed – one of the largest parks in Russia. It is safe to say that Nizhny will become one of the most convenient cities in the country for walks and family vacations. All this would have been impossible without the work of the 800th anniversary team, which includes representatives of the authorities at all levels, social activists, and activists. But the most important thing was the support of Nizhny Novgorod residents, their faith in their hometown and their desire to make it better!
The 800th anniversary has a very good motto: “The beginning of a new one.” The anniversary acts as a bridge, a link between the past and the future. Nizhny has big plans. New metro stations and road construction, the creation of an IT campus and the reboot of the historic center are all drivers of development for both the city and the region. On this day, I wish all projects to come true.
Let Nizhniy grow and develop, and more and more children’s voices sound on its streets.
Happy holiday, friends!
