Historic Monuments of Novgorod and Surroundings (Novgorod - Russia)

Situated on the ancient trade route between Central Asia and northern Europe, Novgorod was Russia's first capital in the 9th century. 
Surrounded by churches and monasteries, it was a centre for Orthodox spirituality as well as Russian architecture. 
Its medieval monuments and the 14th-century frescoes of Theophanes the Greek (Andrei Rublev's teacher) illustrate the development of its remarkable architecture and cultural creativity.
