  • This Kremlin is well worth visiting if you are in the St Petersburg area. Beautiful churches, excellent museum, beautiful areas.  more »
  • The place where you want to visit. Sure. At least once in their life. So much so that the entrance is free. From early morning until the last evening. Awesome great place. Historic Park and Museum!

  • Indeed, being present in the Kremlin, you feel the ancient democracy and Novgorod (reserved and austere character of its architecture). The level of restoration of monuments-work restorers here is enormous-very high. Go for a walk in the Kremlin and Novgorod and guests. Huge place of Novgorod in Russia's history. Visit to the city should begin with the Kremlin. Beautiful city near and dear to me.

Where to stay in Veliky Novgorod

Despite Veliky Novgorod's popularity as a tourist destination, it offers a somewhat limited selection of accommodations. If you want to stay in the center, choose from several mid-range hotels and a couple more luxurious options. Alternatively, explore the few hostels and guesthouses here, some of which are located in peaceful areas outside the city. Due to the limited options, be sure to reserve lodging ahead of time.
