NOVGOROD - RUSSIA

 
  {short description of image}  
 

This set of arches is all that remains of the merchant stall section in the trader's quarter across the Volkov from the Novgorod kremlin. The standard design was created during the reign of Catherine II and applied to many towns in Russia. Behind it some of the many churches in this part of town now like an architectural park are visible. The area was built up with wooden edifices and streets paved with split logs. The tall tower with scafolding is the Veche tower.
