3-DAY ST.PETERSBURG AND NOVGOROD TOUR

St.Petersburg and Novgorod Highlights

Combine classical St Petersburg tour with a journey to Veliky Novgorod. Far off the beaten track, discover a small Russian city, from where “Russia started”. Compare rich cathedrals of the tsars' St Petersburg with coziness of tiny medieval churches of Novgorod, and contrast imperial grandeur of the palaces of the Romanovs with wooden architecture of the peasants' cottages. Our guide is ready to answer your questions, whether it is about the mysteries of Russian soul or the circumstances of Rasputin's murder.

The journey from St.Petersburg to Novgorod the Great takes around 3 hours by car on the major highway. The road itself is a pleasant way to see the countryside. You will be accompanied by a historian ready to share their knowledge on Medieval Russia in an easy way, and to prepare you for understanding the very roots of Russian culture. In the city itself you will spend around 5-6 hours (walking + driving), visiting all the sites mentioned and anything beyond we can pick up to match your interests. After a lunch you will take a ride back to return to St Petersburg in the evening.

Fantastic tour and excellent guide!
My wife and I were in St. Petersburg for 5 days and booked 3 tours with Timofey Kruglikov. He organized wonderful tours. The guides were very knowledgeable and we can't recommend this company enough. I tire very easy and our guides were very attentive to my special needs of sitting down and resting. We booked a full day tour to Novgorod to visit the Icon museum and the Kremlin. We had a very comfortable van and the driver was excellent. Our guide was super and was well prepared. We went to a great restaurant for lunch.
