Photographer's Note

taken inside the Novgorod Kremlin.
Veliky Novgorod (also Novgorod the Great) or just Novgorod, is one of the most important historic cities in Russia which serves as the administrative center of Novgorod Oblast. It is among the oldest cities of Russia, founded in the 9th or 10th century. Novgorod is known for the variety and age of its medieval monuments. The Novgorod Kremlin, traditionally known as the Detinets, also contains the oldest palace in Russia (the so-called Chamber of the Facets, 1433), which served as the main meeting hall of the archbishops; the oldest Russian bell tower (mid-15th century), and the oldest Russian clock tower (1673) (from wiki)
