 Tourists from China
Tourists from China (Korea?). I was very surprised to see roaring crowds of Chinese. To see Russia for them is exotic and Novgorod for them is very interesting for its antiquity. But the problem with guides with knowledge of Chinese and tourists hardly understand anything about the sights and just idly wander around the Kremlin and the city. Mainly in the Kremlin and environs, I did not see them in the city, i.e. they do not know that nishtyakov and attractions in Novgorod very much.

Florentine Lions
Florentine Lions guard the entrance to the building. These woolens are widely replicated both in Petersburg (for example, Lobanov-Rostovsky House is) and in the cities Russia. We must make a wish and rub the tails of the lions. Novgorod students have their omen: before the exam you need to come to the King of beasts and rub his paw or nose.

Falcon yard
Tourists walked past me, wife to husband: what is there? - yes some garbage, for 500 rubles. you can touch the falcon.

Public toilet
The toilet is beautiful! :) More beautiful only on Dekabristov Square in St. Petersburg.

In an amicable way, only one Kremlin needs a day or two to make out. And I had only 8 hours for the whole Novgorod.
