Unfortunately, the bear was gone. Bench had only a trace of him. Store sellers, next house, said that someone broke the bear.

The bear is located on the very pretty riverfront walking path across the river from the Kremlin. He is very cute. Take the time to stroll by and say "Hi". Make sure to see the others along the shore.

As we walked along the Aleksandr Nevsky Embankment on the right shore of Volkhov River, we got suddenly in front of this brown bear sitting on the bench. The bear appears as he came from the russian forest, longing to look at the Novgorodians and get some acquaintance with them.
