Day Trip to Novgorod

1-day Veliky Novgorod tour from St. Petersburg is a break-away from the European architecture to take a dive in genuine ancient Russia. Novgorod Veliky, a city that used to be part of Ganza trade routes, an important key-point on the way from Vikings to the Greece, played an important role in medieval times and had an ancient equivalent to a republic government system. The age-long history of Novgorod has rises and falls, tragic pages and merry free times. Your introduction to Veliky Novgorod will also include local legends alongside with serious facts.

A day trip to Novgorod is available both from cruise ships and from hotels.
