“A monument dedicated to prominent Russians from first 1000 years of country's history”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2012

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.

“Notable Monument at the Center of the Novgorod Kremlin”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2012

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). The monument itself is very impressive, although the history of it is unclear if you didn't do the research beforehand (I did not). While you probably won't go seeking out the monument by itself on your visit to the kremlin, you will easily find it, so make sure to just examine its fine details. Then sit and relax by its side and people watch (a great activity in Russia!).

“Interesting monument but needs explanation”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2011

We were lucky to have a guide with us to explain all of the interesting parts of this impressive monument otherwise we probably would've just taken a photo and walked on. There are many famous Russians located on it so it helps to have some basic knowledge of Russian history to understand why they're important and a guide to point out of all the important figures.

“An Impressive Monument”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2008

This monument is quite interesting and an impressive piece of art. It is obvious even at first glance that it is more than just any ordinary monument, but to really get the most of it I think one needs to either have a good local guide that can point things out to you or find a good description in a travel guide book.

The monument is interesting not just because it depicts the history of Russia during the first 1,000 years, but also because it shows the events from a Russian perspective. I found it quite interesting to see the importance placed on events that to me as a western European never had had any major significance.
