Not comparable with its Moscow counterpart, it nevertheless offers a different but worthwhile experience. It, too, is built close to a river (Volkhov), and a section of the still-intact walls (though much repaired over the 8 centuries-plus since their initial construction) is adjacent to a sandy beach. 9 of its 12 towers still stand, and the 41 meter-high Kukui Tower...

Loved our day at the Kremlin. Founded in the 10th century, Novgorod is very rich in history and is one of the oldest cities of modern Russia. The Kremlin contains the oldest palace in Russia (Chamber of the Facets). We particularly enjoyed visiting the open air museum of wooden architecture and St. Sophia Cathedral (don't miss the frescoes and the... More

This is a small Kremlin, compared with others. It is free to enter, very quite and clean. There is a lot to see and walk around. The people who work there are very nice and helpful.

It's worth coming out to VN for a day trip from St Petersburg or Moscow, or as a stop over between the two cities just to see the Kremlin, which is the oldest in Russia. It's a short 30 minute walk from the station - just head straight over the road from the station and keep going, past the square... More

I just loved this charming place . This is the first city founded in Russia. Walls are quite interesting but one must remember that much was destroyed during WW2. It has been restored beautifully.

This Kremlin really stands majestic in the city.It is awesome.it was an old structure and hence now it is under restoration works.the tower in this climbs tall and gives a good view of the city.a quick visit to this place is not possible due to its well spread structures.a good place to people who love heritage monuments.
