As Novgorod, this is one of the most ancient monasteries in Russia. According to legend, the monastery was founded in 1030 by Yaroslav the Wise whose Christian name was George (that is Yuri). One of the important destinations of the monastery was to protect the city of Novgorod from the side of Ilmen Lake
This is one of the most beautiful monuments of northern architecture and its is located in the fields on the left bank of the Volkhov, several kilometers from Novgorod the Great. If you travel in a car, you should go to the temple by the circu-lar road (around water meadows) through the village Sholokhovo. You can`t pass by the bank of the Volkhov
An interesting sight of Novgorod the Great, the Vitoslavitsy museum of wooden architecture, is 4 kilometers from the city, on the road running along the Lake Myachino. It would be better to combine a visit to the museum with a trip to the St. Yuri Monastery, which is in the immediate vicinity of the Vitoslavitsy museum
The Dostoevsky Museum in Staraya Russa
Its full name is the Church of the Transfiguration of Our Saviour on Kovalevo Field. In the late Middle Ages there was a monastery here, and a Novgorod boyar named Ontsifor Zhabin decided to build the Church of the Transfiguration of Our Saviour in the field. The burial vault of the Zhabin family is in the southern annex of the church
