Enjoy a fascinating day out of St. Petersburg with a trip to one of Russia's most ancient cities, Novgorod. View significant monuments, including the 11th-century St. Sophia Cathedral and the Old Marketplace. Indulge in a traditional Russian lunch in the grounds of the Novgorod Kremlin.

Novgorod was built on the trade route between central Asia and northern Europe, and was Russia's first capital during the 9th century. Surrounded by churches and monasteries, it was once considered a spiritual center. Medieval monuments and frescoes still stand as a testament to its architectural development.

Today the city is a UNESCO-listed site and makes for a great day trip from St. Petersburg. On your visit, stop at the Novgorod Kremlin, which houses Russia's oldest clock tower. After a delicious lunch in a traditional restaurant, head to the Old Marketplace on the banks of the Volkhov River. Finally, gaze in wonder at the beauty of the Yuriev Monastery, Russia's oldest monastery.
