hi there....how feasible is this?
we will be staying in st petes for five nights and i think we can do a daytrip from this city to v. novgorod by train ( 3hrs)
we are used to doing these long day trips - starting out at 6 am and getting back to our lodgings by early evening
we are staying on nevsky prospekt in an apartment
im guessing we go to the main station - is that the moskovsky vokzal to catch the train
is it better to go the day before and buy the tickets? if not how much time before the trip do we go ?
how about on the way back? a long way back 4hr trip by bus - is it anymore scenic? justfor a change???
given we have only the day there- what would you see?
both the east and west sides of the river- yaroslavs court and kremlin?
can we do a little bus trip to the marshes to the monastery?
we are not going to spend all of our time in st petes looking at museums and palaces- we d rather get out to the smaller villages
