  • The embankment is one of the best observation points of the city. Especially beautiful at sunset. Under the plinth-Christmas Stroganov and Church on the opposite bank of the famous Volga arrow-the confluence of the Oka and Volga. I recommend to visit here.

  • BE SURE to visit if you are traveling in Novgorod. The waterfront is visible and Oka and Volga and lower town. There are places where you can stroll, also fashionable down to the shore.

  • very beautiful view on the Volga River. have walked with colleagues. though often go in the bottom, always nice to stroll. though we have more monumental than the embankments in St. Petersburg, but the river ... the river!))
