Photographer's Note

Novgorod is one of the famous cities in Russia. It was founded in 12 century and called “Lord Novgorod the Great”. The Novgorod Kremlin with towers and walls is a complex of military and engineering art erected during from 11 till 16 centuries. Firstly wooden then became stone of a red brick. The walls are as long as 1400 meters. Up to now 9 towers among 13 ones were kept. The picture has been taken from a viewing platform of watchtower Kokuy which has height more than 40 meters. All city is surveyed from the tower. The small squares are cut out in the tower windows for photolenses for convenience of photographing. A view on Intercession church (1305) and tower (1302) is on the presented picture. The haven for poor aged women "settled down" at the church and the tower. It is a lot of swallows and other birds live in towers.
