Novgorod region attracts travelers with the opportunity to regain or regain spiritual peace, for some it is possible to find peace in monasteries and temples, for some it is easier to achieve this effect in reunion with the wild nature.
Escape from the dusty cities loaded with information, separate the tinsel from the really important by means of solitude and reflection, as Boris Grebenshikov sang, "sitting on a beautiful hill".

The Way to Novgorod Lands

The first stop on our journey is the city of Gatchina, whose history begins with the Novgorod chronicles. The 18th century brought fashion to English landscape parks here: ancient palaces are reflected in the surface of lake water. Many temples await us on the way to Veliky Novgorod. Take a breath with the view of the waterfall.

Find yourself on Valdai.

Valdai is rightly considered to be a place of strength, it is loved to organize field training sessions like "energy reset of the body" and other personality transformations. By its location - "the space between the kerb and the kerb". Bell ringing. Transparent water of springs and lakes. You can check into a budget hotel, which is sure to have a Russian bath, offers to take you hunting or fishing. Tie a foam to your backpack and go on your own walking or cycling trip. There are also organized eco-trails, man-made and natural attractions.
