There are a few ways to mend it. First look closely at grill for screws or clips you may even have to remove headlight assembly locate where the cable attaches to hood latch. Grab hold of cable with vice grips or wire pliers and pull to make hood release.

Also in the bellow link there are couple of videos which shows how to repair the bonnet not opening situations.

Diagrams as such are different for various models and can be found in the instruction manuals.

Let us know if you have something more to know else accept the suggestion.

Can you tell me please where to find tools that usually accompany car and also the device for lowering spare wheel

Make and model?
They vary a lot on how to lower the spare but generally you will need a wheel brace. As for the bonnet release..... try under the steering column, under the passenger glovebox and either side lower down the window pillars. Some even have a keyhole behind the bonnet badge that swings up. When released, the secondary catch is always fun to work out.....not! Lift the bonnet slightly and look in the grill and see if a little handle has popped out for you to pull. Otherwise try and look and feel under the bonnet for a release mechanism.
Like I said, make and model will help someone help you. You could also try owners forums online. I find them great for just about any problem.

Nissan dead battery how do you open the bonnet?

Under the dash on the driver's side is a bonnet release. Pull the release towards the seat. This should release the first bonnet restraint.
Next, under the front of the bonnet is a secondary release lever. Slide this lever to the right and lift the bonnet.
On the right side of the engine compartment on top should be a prop rod for the bonnet. Put this into the receptacle hole on the bonnet.
