Escape the bustling city of St Petersburg with an overnight stay in a country house in ancient Novgorod. Your visit begins with a tour of the historic Kremlin (Fortress) grounds and the open air museum of Russian wooden architecture. Youâ€™ve free time to admire Novgorod - listed by UNESCO as one of the top 100 cities of the world which are of great historical and cultural value due to its having over six hundred unique historic, architectural, and cultural monuments. Why not soak up the views from a leisurely walk along the Volkhov river, visit one of the great medieval abbeys, or wander round the quaint shops and bars.
If the weather is clement thereâ€™s the option to go fishing or take a boat ride down the river (cost not included - book and pay locally.) Later, enjoy a traditional Russian banya (sauna) and true Russian hospitality - dinner with a local family consisting of chicken shashlik (marinated kebab) and of course - vodka!
