As one of the Briercrest students living and studying abroad at SPbCU, I have been granted the opportunity to write a guest post and would like to write about some of the excursions outside of St. Petersburg that we had the opportunity to take.
In Novgorod we had the opportunity to visit a monastery and the Novgorod Kremlin where we visited one of the oldest cathedrals in Russia, the St. Sophia Cathedral. We also had the chance to see a wooden village and the monument to the Millennium of Russia.
