Novgorod is one of the most ancient Russian towns in the North-West. It is located in between Moscow and ST-Petersburg on the banks of Volhov River and Ilmen Lake. Veliky means Great in Russian. The name is self-explanatory; throughout many centuries Novgorod used to be a political centre of territories spreading from the Baltic Sea to the Ural Mountains as well as the greatest international trade centre.
Visitors will be shown around the Kremlin, the walls of which defended the ancient city of Novgorod and also served as the city centre. The literal translation for Kremlin means fortress. Some of the walls of the Kremlin date back to the XIV century. The tour of the Novgorod Kremlin includes a visit to the Cathedral of ST Sophia (XI century), one of the most outstanding monuments of the ancient Russian architecture.
The next stop of the tour is Yuriev Monastery with its cathedral of ST George which was consecrated in the XI century in the name of one of the most worshipped Russian saints. The tour of Novgorod will finish in the Museum of the Wooden Architecture, Vitoslavitsy, a reproduction of the traditional Russian village.
