The monument is from 1862, and is dedicated to the great man of Russia until then (but not all of them). You will like this is you have a native guide or a good guidebook.

The monument is built in the bell shape with the sculptures of people who played the most important role in russian history untill the end of the 19-th century. One may see how Alexander Nevski, Peter the greate, St.Vladimir and other remarkable russian people looked like. The monument is very symbolic.

To properly tell the story of Russia available from this structure, you really need an experienced guide. We had one who was excellent and it took him a good 45 minutes to explain everything covered here. It really is amazing how such a complicated history can be contained in one monument.

really great, reflecting people who influenced our history over past centuries - Tsars, heroes, poets, warriors....a good thing for Russians to check their historical skills and recognize figures on the Monument ;-)

In many respects, this is the “crown jewel” of the Novgorod Kremlin. Russians consider that their country was born in 862 when Rurik, a legendary Scandinavian chieftain came to the region and built a fort near the present-day city, after being invited by the local tribes to establish order following years of internecine fighting. One thousand years later, a competition... More

Our guide gave us a 15 minute explanation around the monument. It explains every part of the history of Russia from its beginning. I really liked this and hoped there was a book that would explain each part of it to take home with me.

Go with a local guide to find out about the history of this monument. Really lovely working, the guide that I had was able to tell me about all the people on the top of the monument and some in the middle. It's really fascinating, the history.
