Novgorodskaya Oblast' Travel Guide: 125 reviews and 302 photos
Novgorodskaya Oblast is one of many existing Russian Regions and its located in the northwestern part of the Russian and by this, East Europe.
The region goes all the way from the west to the east in a distance of 385 km, and from the north to the south about 250 km. It borders with other Russian regions as Pskovskaya, Tverskaya, Leningradskaya and Vologodskaya Oblasts. The area of the region is 55,3 thousand sq. km. Due to the convenient geographical position it is connected with Moscow and Saint Petersburg. Through its territory the railway and highway Saint Petersburg - Moscow run. This is the highway II have done twice. Its called highway but nothing of “real highway” really exists, just a bad road running all the way through out the region connecting St. Petersburg and the capital.
Places with interest that I've visited in the region are:
Small village north of Novgorod on the way to Vyazhishchi Monastery. It has a interesting old church a a decent yet simple war monument.
This amazing cultural town is listen on the UNESCO sites for World Heritage. Simple worth a visit you'll find yourself lost on the enourmous number of monuments, convents and museums that here exist.
This is a very hidden place and for this very special as is really off the beaten path. This green decorated monastery close to a lake and garden has the impressive cathedral of St. Nicholas open in summer for season devotion to the saint.
Valday is where is located the Iversky monastery in the shore of the Valdaiskoe lake, and helds a very interesting monastery worth a quick visit if youre heading Moscow driving.
