It would be no exaggeration to say, that every person has a favourite place. As for me, Chkalovsk is my soul space! I was born in this peaceful and picturesque town. Chkalovsk is not big but remarkable for its citizens, history and culture. It was founded in 1152 by Ury Dolgoruky and is 860 years old now. In fact the town used to be a settlement, Vasileva Sloboda, but in 1937 it was named after a famous Soviet hero – Valery Pavlovich Chkalov. It happened when Chkalov, Baidukov and Beliakov had flight to the USA through the North Pole. There are streets named after the heroes in the town. Thanks to the growth of its population, the settlement became a town later.
My parents live in Chkalov street that is known for the hero’s house (museum nowadays), Hangar of Chkalov's planes and Palace of Culture. These sights are worth seeing! They are just fascinating and marvelous! If I had much spare time, I would spend hours climbing the planes like a nosy child. To be reasonably fair, this activity captivates not only boys and girls but adults as well. It is incredible but this sort of thing is not forbidden, so nobody would be angry with you if you try it! Can you?! Come and do it yourself!
There is Chkalov’s house next to the hangar. In this museum visitors can learn the facts of Valery Pavlovich’s life and the life of the town during that time. The guides are very hospitable and charming, so they always give interesting information most willingly. Unfortunately the Palace of Culture cannot be visited at the moment as it is being restored now but the authorities say it won’t take more than a year. Nevertheless there are some more wonderful places to visit in Chkalovsk. If you are fond of arts and crafts, go to the famous factory of guipure! It is the only place in Nizhny Novgorod region that produces this kind of lace. Guipure looks smart. Visitors are offered to watch an exhibition and to buy something for themselves. One can take in cafes or clubs, visit Kamanin’s Art Gallery, Merchant Rukavishnikov’s House or just enjoy the view of the Volga river in Chkalovsk. The nature is lovely here. Welcome to Chkalovsk!
