Veliky Novgorod is an ancient Russian city, a treasure trove of art and culture, a museum of ancient Russia.
This city is not called Veliky (the Great) by chance. We can make an enormous list of masterpieces of ancient architecture, landmarks and memorials of Veliky Novogorod which you can see in different city guides, but it is much more difficult to capture the atmosphere of the beautiful city, where every corner is an evidence of the great Russian history, and every stone imbued with the spirit of Russian. The ancient and eternally young Novgorod is the best place on earth to fully experience Russian roots.
To make a tour to Veliky Novgorod is to witness the ancient stone temples, participate in the battles of the Novgorod warriors and to careful read messages written by our ancestors on birch bark. Sightseeing tour to Veliky Novgorod will give the opportunity to visit the shore of Lake Ilmen where the merchant Sadko was singing his songs and to stand next to the walls of Novgorod Kremlin, from where Alexander Nevsky went on a campaign long ago.
Sightseeing tours in Veliky Novgorod turn into a fascinating journey through the rich treasury of ancient Russia. There is no other Russian city which has so many architectural buildings, decorated with wall paintings.
The tour includes such sights as the Kremlin, St Sophia Cathedral, Yaroslav’s Court.
