Where is Semenov? The city of Semenov is located in the north-eastern part of the Nizhny Novgorod region and stands on the Sanohte River. Also next to it lies the Trans-Siberian Railway and there is a railway station. The distance to the capital of the region is not more than 70 km.

Historically, the city originated as a settlement of the Old Believers as early as the 17th century, and at first it was a village, which by the end of the 18th century had reached the status of the district city of the Nizhny Novgorod province. Currently, many religious buildings are reminiscent of the Old Believers time and have survived to this day. Many buildings of the city keep merchant secrets in themselves.
