Velikiy Novgorod is one of the most ancient cities in the north-west of Russia. By the way, it is our  major center of literacy and book production. Our tour will start from "Vitoslavlitsy",  the most interesting museum of folk wooden architecture here. Then we will proceed to the Historical architectural complex on the trading side of Veliky Novgorod - Yaroslav’s courtyard. It is the second historical center of Novgorod after the Kremlin. Yaroslav’s courtyard was signed to the UNESCO heritage objects in 1992. Today there are 7 temples, which belong to the architectural complex of Yaroslav's Courtyard. We continue our tour in the  Kremlin of Novgorod . It was considered to be one of the oldest monuments of military-defensive architecture in Russia during XV-XVII centuries. We will visit Faceted Palace, a unique monument in Western European Gothic style. It was built in 1433 jointly with German masters. We will see Exposition “Jewelry Art of the 6th - 17th Centuries in the collection of the Novgorod Museum ”, which is located on the second floor of the Faceted Palace in the Gothic Hall and the Crest Chamber. Then we will explore St. Sophia Cathedral. It was supposed to be the most ancient church of Russia, built in 1045-1050. You will be impressed by splendor of the interior of the church: two ancient iconostasis, bronze Korsun gate of the XI century, the oldest Orthodox necropolis, Tsar’s (Ivan the Terrible) wooden prayer place of the XVI century, which was richly decorated with carving, six-tier bronze panadilo - a gift from Boris Godunov in 1600 year. Then you will have a free time for shopping. After this our Guide will drop you back to the railway station for your return way trip.
