Owner description: Various architectural masterpieces are conveniently located all in one place inside this court, which was the economic and political center of Novgorod in ancient times.
Reviewed 22 July 2012

This area is just across the river bridge from the Kremlin. It is filled with quit large number of ancient churches hinting the past wealth of the city and the importance of the religion.
The buildings are yet to be fully restored therefore the impression is very authentic.
There are also number of landmarks signifying relation of the city to Hansa merchants union in the middle ages: Hansa area map and commemorative monument.

This part of Novgorod is littered with churches. It is impossibel to walk more than a few steps before you see another church appear. Bearing in mind the costs associated with the building and maintenance of such buildings, it is a strong indication of the power and wealth that the city of Novgorod obviously had in its heyday.

Although it is nowhere nearly as well restored and maintained as the Kremlin and the buildings inside it, it is still an interesting place to visit with a history that is just as fascinating as those of the buildings on the other side of the river. There are interesting details in the architecture of some of the buildings that hints at the connections Novgorod had with southern and central Europe, and the number and location of the churches clearly tells a story about the position religion held at that time.

Unfortunately most of the buildings have only been partially restored, and the share scale of the work required and the costs associated with it probably means that it will be a long time until it will be completed.

If Yaroslav's Court were the centerpiece of its own town, it would probably be quite a sight to behold. But it doesn't quite compare with the magificent Kremlin just across the river. This is a nice area to walk around if you need something to do, but it photographs just as well from the Kremlin as it does up close. The cathedral in Yaroslav's Court isn't open to the public, and although there is supposedly an exhibition hall across from the cathedral, it was closed when I was there.
