    The Cathedral is certainly worth a visit. A bit of a shame that every single step in Novgorod-surcharge. But apparently this is already nothing can be done, the process will only go further. Here in St. Nicholas Cathedral, for example, came up with the show on the history of the Cyclorama of the city. Typically, such movies show in museums is free for all visitors wishing to spend time over such a short here but decided to sell extra tickets, "for power to hurt" (((However, if the budget you have not quite hard, I still recommend the movie show, a lot of interesting information, for example, it turned out that place veche square is still undefined.

    Walking through Jaroslavovu dvorishhu, decided to go with friends to the Cathedral of St. Nicholas the Wonderworker. The Cathedral which stands nearly 900 years old, in my opinion, is the heart and the main attraction of Yaroslav's Court. Outwardly similar to the Sofiskij Cathedral. Entrance fee. Entrance ticket in March 2017 year amounted to 80 rub. You can take the audioguide (price 100 USD 1000 and USD deposit). By the way, you can take the audioguide for the entire Yaroslav's Court, and the Novgorod Kremlin. Inside the Cathedral is divided into 3 conventional zones. "Hall, ground floor and Cathedral itself. In the basement gift shop, a small exhibition, multimedia panorama (price of 80 rubles, but single tickets + Cathedral panorama worth 150 roubles) and the most interesting fragments of the fresco "the last judgement". However, admire a mural you need already prepared (after panorama or picture)-otherwise you will not see anything there. Take along an audio guide and Panorama makes no sense. The Cathedral is best admired from the audioguide. It's loud enough and enough of one to several people. Inside the Cathedral, many fragments of frescoes at the age of more than 800 years. Interesting to see "choruses", listen to the story as a wooden palace to shift there got notable personage, etc. Also warms the soul thought that these walls was Novgorod veche. Panorama is a small circular room, with small soft "stool", which show a film about Novgorod and on the Cathedral of approximately 10 and 20 minutes respectively. Fresco "the last judgment" it is better to look after. Just be careful, the movie constantly moves round the walls and starts feel dizzy. In my opinion the visitors with weak buccal apparatus or with epilepsy need to be very accurate. Staff very friendly and helpful.

  • An ethereal place. If possible visit during a Sunday morning service. The choir is divine. Small gift shop with religious icons.
  • Very very nice!!!
  • Some old wall is still visible.
  • The second oldest Cathedral in Veliky Novgorod. Fragments of the ancient frescoes (including a very beautiful ornaments). The list of "new" frescoes and decorative elements of Baroque. We really liked it.
