Footnotes

  • In 1817, the Makaryev Fair, one of the liveliest in the world, was transferred to Nizhny Novgorod, after it was destroyed by fire a year earlier. It became one of the most important market fairs of its kind, with millions of visitors annually and by the mid-19th century, the city on the Volga was firmly established as the trade capital of the Russian Empire. The Nizhny Fair was held during July and August and the fair attracted merchants from all over Russia, from the East (Greek, Turkey, Iran) and Western Europe.
