Chkalov was born in Nizhniy Novgorod and he worked as a stoker on the dredge and boat until he went to the Red Army. This is also the time when he was killed. He is just the hero of his time. You need to see this memorial and feel the spirit of it. It is a long walk to get up there but it is worth it and the view from over there is also very beautiful - right to the Volga. It is very lovely on a sunny day or at the late evening.
