This article is devoted to Russia Tourism and trip to Veliky Novgorod on the whole. In our previous blog posts we have already discussed how to obtain Russian visa, how to book private guided Russia tours or tour packages. We have already described TOP 10 Saint-Petersburg and Moscow Attractions and different ways of saving money while travelling to Moscow. Today, we would like to talk about Veliky Novgorod and different means of travelling there.
Veliky Novgorod – is a small mieval town only 200 km away from Saint-Petersburg. It lies on the shore of the Volkhov River and Ilmen Lake. Novgorod Russia is connected to Moscow and Saint-Petersburg by highway and railway. So you can either travel there by fast train (2,5 hours) or by private transportation (3 hours). During your trip to Novgorod Russia you will enjoy a walk on the territory of one of the oldest Kremlins, you will visit 11th & 12th century Russian Churches and Monasteries with original frescoes inside, explore the traditional Russian wooden village, you will also try traditional Russian dishes and learn more about Russian culture and Russian history. Our “Show me Russia” Travel Agency provides tour packages to Novgorod with guided services, private Mercedes cars or vans and meals included in the price of the tour. Besides, we organize special 3-Day Shore Excursions St Petersburg for those who are having St Petersburg Cruise and who are staying in Saint-Petersburg for 3 days. We also provide special visa-free tours and tour tickets for cruise ship passengers.
