I live in Nizhny Novgorod. There is high security, low prices, moderately good roads, traffic jams almost there, but the flow of cars is dense. Odorless air is almost everywhere except for the water treatment plant and a couple of food processing plants.

I visited Nizhniy Novgorod many times. Most of the time there was a strange smell in the air. Maybe it caused by numerous factories and plants. Actually, there was a time when air was fresh and pleasent to brief. I don't know what it depends on. Air is generally polluted, especially on streets with a heavy traffic.
Cost of living is the same as in any other city in Russia. Not too expensive.
In addition to traffic, Nizhniy Novgorod suffers from traffic jams during rush hours. It's actually okay and doesn't lasts long, for about an 1-1,5 in the morning and in the evening.
