In addition to its official districts, Naberezhnye Chelny is also divided into several other sections which in turn are then divided into complexes. The number of the complex is used more often than the name of the streets and we therefore list both after each sight.
The area west of the River Melekeska is known as GES village (посёлок ГЭС). GES is the Russian abbreviation for a hydroelectric station and the Nizhekamsk Hydroelectric Station (НКГЭС) is located nearby. The main road in the GES section of Naberezhnye Chelny is Prospekt Musy Dzhalilya which runs from the railway and bus station to the River Melekeska. The GES section is subdivided into 10 complexes.
After River Melekeska Prospekt Musy Dzhalilya turns into Naberezhnochelninsky Prospekt which then runs north. The part of the city around this prospect, in between the Meleksa and the Chelna rivers, is known as the ZYaB village (посёлок ЗЯБ). ZYaB stands for the Russian for cellular concrete factory (завод ячеистых бетонов), which is located close to this area. Further along Naberezhnochelninsky Prospekt just before it turns into Prospekt Mira is the area known as Orlovka Village (село Орловка) which runs along the right-bank of the Chelna River.
The area of in the north of Naberezhnye Chelny on the right-bank of the Kama is known as Novy Gorod (Новый город) which means 'new city' as, you've guessed it, this is a newer part of the city. The main road here is Prospekt Mira which is a continuation of Naberezhnochelninsky Prospekt. Novy Gorod is divided into quite a few complexes. The numbering system here seems to have slightly broken down in places, for example you can walk in a row from the 31st complex then to the 40th complex then the 13th complex and then the 42nd complex.
