  • A great place to walk. Arriving in The Great Novgorod necessarily and more than once for the trip pulls to this place, walk, look at the old days, go to the Cathedral. There are a lot of Novgorod residents who come with their families on weekends. It's great that people honor their history. Kids can ride horses and wagons. Everything is kind of friendly and pleasant.

  • The Kremlin stands in the center of Nobgorod. It used to be used as a fortress to protect the city from foreign enemies, and people lived in walls. Although it is a World Heritage Site, it is still used in people's lives, and libraries, music schools, concert halls, etc. exist. Masses are held daily in the church. You can enjoy a different beauty when you look at it from the opposite bank of the night river.
