This bridge was very fun to cross. Look for the statue of the mounted horsemen and also for people swimming in the river!

When leaving the Novgorod Kremlin, its worth having a look at the bridge to see the river. Nice waterside location.

Nice. Not exactly Millennium Bridge in London, but very nice. If travelling in winter, warm clothes are definitely recommended.
