  • Very beautiful the Kremlin, a wonderful place for rest with children. Quiet, calm, tourists not fall much even in season. A place where you can relax from the hustle and bustle of the big city.

  • Visiting the historical places, I always want to say thanks to our ancestors. Is no exception, and Novgorod. Stunning his aura of the Kremlin, which gives special strength, calmness, confidence; Ljudogoshha Street, which is known from 14 century; Yaroslav's Court; The yuryev monastery is the oldest monastery in Northwest Russia-everywhere feels breath of history in our lives, you can feel the connection, the connection with our ancestors.

  • Local, not a tourist. Was in Novgorod at the end of may of the year 2015. Visited the Kremlin with a guide, so very happy. Without him I wouldn't have learned not only the remarkable history of the Citadel, but and Novgorod altogether. Appearance and atmosphere very startled me. One of the beautiful places ...:)
