    Bells of Novgorod

    by aliante1981 Written Apr 7, 2003

    Russia is, among other things, famous for its bells. Novgorod is not an exeption. Better still, it's a bright example of this :))

    Come at round hours to the Kremlin of Novgorod -- more specifically to the bell-tower with several bells (of different sizes and ages) on it to listen to a veritable concert!

    Bsides, bells hold a special significance for Novgorod. When the city lost its independence to Moscow the most important Veche bell was taken away and never given back to Novgorod.

    Ceramics fishing

    There are of course many ways to earn money but everyone doesn't feed a family by searching Viking era ceramics from river like that Russian man did near Volhhov!
