Best of Novgorod


It is the most important monument; it is a unique ensemble of buildings, combining the rigour of medieval fortified walls and towers with the austerity of classical architecture of the 19th century. The Kremlin consisted of 14 towers, but only 12 have survived. In the summer, by climbing up the brick-built Kladovaya Tower you can admire the expanses of the Volga region and views of the Strelka (the confluence of the Volga and Oka rivers).
