A cozy cafe called "The House of Koromyslom" was perfect for us to start the day well. Here we could have breakfast with our usual dishes - omelette with pork steak and vegetables, pancakes and pastries.
Before leaving Veliky Novgorod we decided to take a short walk near the walls of the famous Novgorod Kremlin. We walked around most of its monuments and buildings and even managed to walk along the walls looking at the embankment, which offers a beautiful view of the domes of St. Sophia Cathedral.
The next stop on the way to Saint-Petersburg for us was a small but very atmospheric manor H. A. Nekrasov "Chudovskaya Okola". Here this great writer spent a lot of time walking or hunting, resting from the city bustle. There is a bronze monument to him on the estate territory, and the interior decoration is completely recreated on the basis of archives and memories.
After a short tour of the manor, we moved on. We arrived in Tosno in the afternoon, so we decided to stop here for lunch. Café Baffo was the perfect place for us. Italian cuisine is served here in a cozy atmosphere. Having tasted the local pizza, we went further on the road.
On the way to Kirovsk we wanted to walk a little, so we headed for the Sinyavinsk Heights. Here there is a monument to the Soviet soldiers who fought for liberation of this area, the most important for the enemy, during the blockade of Leningrad.
After a long trip and a walk, we wanted to go for dinner to a restaurant called "Noteburg", located near the coast of the Neva. I have to say, it's quite exquisitely cooked here. Among a great variety of delicacies we have found local desserts as well as salads and meat dishes to taste.
