Russia-Nizhny Novgorod travel vlog 3.1

Second day in this impressive city, with beautiful view of the confluence of Oka and Volga Rivers. Visiting the Dmitrovskaya tower of the Kremlin and the Church of the Nativity will definitely make you remember this city. Originally the name was just Novgorod ("Newtown"), but to distinguish it from the other, older and well-known Novgorod to the west, the city was commonly called "Novgorod of the Lower lands". This land was named "lower" because it is situated downstream, especially from the point of view of other Russian cities such as Moscow, Vladimir and Murom. Later it was transformed into the contemporary name of the city that literally means "Lower Newtown". Nizhny Novgorod, along with its Kremlin, is beautifully situated on the hills overlooking the Volga River. The Kremlin, dating back to the 16th century, has a 2-kilometre brick fortress wall and 13 watchtowers. It stands on an elevation offering a breathtaking view of the city and its waterfront. Nizhny Novgorod is one of a hundred world cities included on the UNESCO World Heritage List. Today, Nizhny Novgorod has a population of 1.2 million and continues to grow as a key business and cultural center in Russia.

Top 25 world's most corrupt countries

Song: Harvest Reverie by Play & Pause Corruption costs the world trillions of dollars each decade, and it is up to us to decide what to do about it. In many Third World countries, corruption is a big problem because many political elites don't care about their people's needs. They enrich themselves, instead of enriching their populations. Corruption is also a problem in some developed countries, France is one of the most corrupt countries in the developed world. It is sad for me to say this about my native country, but it is a reality we can no longer ignore. My country of origin, Republic of the Congo is far more worse off than France. it is very corrupt beyond imagination.
