"Russia's heritage" Velikiy Novgorod by sswagner

Velikiy Novgorod Travel Guide: 104 reviews and 255 photos

We visited Novgorod as a day trip from St. Petersburg. This city is located towards Moscow, however it is much closer to St. Petersburg. This is an attractive woodland setting. Besides the main road between the two large cities, the train also stops here. in Novgorod, you will find some places that highlight the history of Russia. There are several sites worth exploring in and around the city. We were taken by our St. Petersburg guide to some of the key sites. I wish we had more time here, but at least we were able to come here. There is a wealth of history to explore in Novgorod.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Makes an excellent daytrip from St. Petersburg, teaches you more about Russia
  • Cons:Did not discover any on our visit
  • In a nutshell:This is a worthy part of a visit to Russia.
