In many respects, this is the “crown jewel” of the Novgorod Kremlin. Russians consider that their country was born in 862 when Rurik, a legendary Scandinavian chieftain came to the region and built a fort near the present-day city, after being invited by the local tribes to establish order following years of internecine fighting. One thousand years later, a competition... More

Our guide gave us a 15 minute explanation around the monument. It explains every part of the history of Russia from its beginning. I really liked this and hoped there was a book that would explain each part of it to take home with me.

Go with a local guide to find out about the history of this monument. Really lovely working, the guide that I had was able to tell me about all the people on the top of the monument and some in the middle. It's really fascinating, the history.

The bell is just incredible, and it's a good introduction to the Russian history as all the prominent Russians are carved here. It would be better to have a local guide to explain who's who on the bell to help you having a better understanding of this monument. If you are a cat lover, try to find a cute ginger... More

This is huge bronze monument dedicated to luminaries that has contributed to Russia during first 1000 years of its existence. The number of figures is quit large, get good guidebook with its explanation or get a guide.

You won't get to wander far into the Novgorod Kremlin before running into the Millennium of Russia monument, which stands proud in the plaza of the kremlin. In front of the monument is where many of the events and celebrations inside the kremlin take place (for example, on my visit, there was a choir there, followed by a religious celebration).... More
