The citys history is inseparably linked with the history of this country. Arzamas was at the hub of activity in the Time of Troubles, during the revolt of Stepan Razin.

The city is located in the centre of the right-bank area of the Novgorod Region, on the hillside by the right bank of River Tesha (the right inflow of Oka) 110 km away from Nizhni Novgorod and 410 km away from Moscow, at the junction of trunk-railways.

Arzamas is a city with immense architectural, town-planning and historical past. It is included in the list of cities of important historical and cultural value, and its location on the way of tourist itineraries to Sarovo Diveevo and Bolshoe Boldino directions makes it attractive to tourists.
