Sightseeing in Novgorod

Author: Maria Mushtrieva (on 27 Aug 2018)

Novgorod is a small town that you can cross in an hour. It’s split by the Volkhov river in two parts: Sofiyskaya embankment (the left side) and the Trade Side (the right side).

The train station, the university and most of the sights, including the Kremlin are on the left Sofiyskaya side of the river, while most restaurants, businesses, and residential areas are on the right Trade side. Therefore it makes sense to find accommodation somewhere close to the river, so you can get the best of the both sides, although it’s also very cheap to get around by taxi.
For trips out of town you should check out the beautiful lakes in Taiga forests and nearby villages — they are all quiet, beautiful, serene, amazing and easily accessible with public transport.
