Chkalovsk is a city in the Nizhny Novgorod region, which is located on the high right bank of the Volga, near the Gorkovsky reservoir. It used to bear another name - Vasilyovo - but was renamed after the Soviet test pilot V.P. Chkalov.
Tourists will have a fascinating walk around the city, albeit small, but very interesting. One of his most famous attractions is the V.P. Chkalov Museum, a memorial complex created in honor of the Hero of the Soviet Union. It includes the house where the pilot was born and a hangar with aircraft from the thirties of the last century.
You also visit the Speed Museum dedicated to ship and screen planning. Several halls house exhibits, including photographs, copies and original documents, personal effects, installations, ship models. The exposition covers the history of the city: from the period of formation of the Gorkovsky reservoir, which flooded then Vasilyovasloboda, to the present day.
Special attention in the museum is paid to the works of Rostov Alexey Alekseev, the creator of on-board planes and ships on underwater wings. He was a talented designer, yachtsman, and artist - his works you will find in the hall.
We advise you to bring a camera with you. This city is interesting not only by museums, but also by a profitable location. From the shore there are picturesque views of the "Gorkov Sea," as the reservoir is often called.
