On the bank of the Volkhov river opposite the Kremlin you can see at least as curious place – the Yaroslavovo Dvorishche (Yaroslav's Court) or the Trade Mart. The Court appeared in the 11 century as a market and veche square. Now there are 8 ancient churches and cathedrals on the small area of the Court. St. Nicholas Cathedral, founded by Mstislav the Great in 1113, may be considered the main attraction of the Trade Mart. The other churches, the Church of St. Paraskeva the Friday, the Church of the Myrrh-bearing Women, the Church of St. Procopius, the Church of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary in the Trade Mart, the Church of St. George in the Trade Mart, the Church of St. John the Baptist-on-Opoki, date back to 12-13 centuries.
