Velikiy Novgorod Things to Do: 70 reviews and 107 photos

Novgorod's trade and political connections with the largest Russian cities were reflected in different areas of art and culture, including architecture. The Church of Paraskeva-Pyatnitsa on the Marketplace, built using the money of "foreign" merchants (i.e. merchants engaged in foreign trade), is a vivid example of this. The present stone construction was put up here to replace the repeatedly restored wooden church.
