Reviews of Cheboksary
Behind this plain name (I've always been sure that there is nothing good in Cheboksary) is hidden a real paradise. Cropped downhills, fountains, people resting on a weekday, a warm evening. Such pictures are usually used as covers for the booklets. It is not a city, it is a sanatorium.
Artemy Lebedev
It is a nice city, much better than Nizhny Novgorod in any way.
Catherine II the Great
Empress of Russia
For most Russians visiting the capital of Chuvash Republic becomes a pleasant discovery. Come here and see for yourself.
