Tourist Information - Red Izba
Novgorod has a very good tourist information center called “Red Izba”, which offers free advice, Wi-Fi (inside and outside in the park around the center), and even emergency services for tourists.
Getting Around - Novgorod Taxi
Calling a taxi doesn’t really make sense as you can wave your hand and hail any car to give you a lift for money, like anywhere in Russia. A trip should cost about 100-200R (€3-6 max). In case you want to order a cab, find someone who speaks Russian and have them call +7 (8162) 600 000
