It was built 13 years and was consecrated in 1881, after the end of treatment of the interior. This monumental and at the same time, an eclectic building, not similar to any other.

    Alexander Nevsky Cathedral, the cathedral had been a market, so it does not have a permanent parish. His parishioners were merchants flocked to the fair. He also served as a meeting place for honorary guests and members of the royal semi.Sobor closed in 1920 and began to disassemble, to build a lighthouse on this site with a monument to Lenin. The project did not materialize, but the cathedral was plundered, the iconostasis chopped for firewood. The cathedral became a warehouse, and during World War II it was installed anti-aircraft battery, which Nizhny Novgorod protected from enemy bombing. At the same time there was a fire that destroyed the painting walls and cathedral ceiling.
