Novgorod – Enjoy the Cultural Trip with Family

Posted on 31 May 2019 by admin (0)

The country of Russia has existed since the sixteenth century. However, Novgorod is in existence since the ninth century. I discovered that the city has a long history, inside, as well as outside of Russia. You should not confuse it with Nizhny Novgorod. There are many things to check when out when you visit this city. Some of these things have been mentioned below.

Visit the Kremlin

If you haven’t ever visited Russia, you might not know that kremlin actually means a citadel. The Kremlin of this city might not be as ornate as Moscow but it is worth checking out. Since I visited during the summer month, I was able to catch a glimpse of the Volkhov River. You will find it flowing outside the walls.

Rent Rollerblades or a Bike

The city center is a walkable distance. However, exploring the attractions on wheels makes it much more fun. At the city center, you will be able to check out some of the ancient attractions. So, rent a rollerblade or at least a bike to make the trip more enjoyable.

Travel Back in Time

Like mentioned earlier, it had been founded almost 700 years before the establishment of first Tsarist State. However, there are still some physical evidence of it. Rurikovo Gorodische is about a mile from the city center. This is where it all began. It was a thrilling experience to visit the place where the city came into being.

Visit Churches

To spend some relaxing and peaceful time, visit the churches. The city is filled with them. It is one of the top things to do when you are in this city. Yuriev Monastery is one church that you should not miss out on. It has been declared as the World Heritage Site by UNESCO. Again, you will find St. Sophia’s Cathedral that is built inside a Kremlin.
