History and Culture
The Leningrad region is a rich and unique region from the cultural point of view, bordering with many territories, which once were the epicenter of historical events of ancient Russia. Probably not even a month will be enough to see and go around the most interesting things in the nearest regions.
Planning this trip, we intended to visit the most significant tourist cities of the region and its surrounding areas, including Volkhov, Tikhvin, Veliky Novgorod and Ivangorod.
Each of these cities has a variety of interesting sights. We will see the famous Novgorod Detinets and Ivangorod Fortress, drive along the Old Ladoga, and visit several ancient estates. We are planning a lot of excursions and walks around historical places.
