The monument of the tourist girl in Novgorod

This monument has different names: tourist girl, a girl without sandals, tired tourist.

The girl-tourist monument is located in the Kremlin of Veliky Novgorod close to the pedestrian bridge across the river Volkhov. It is a figure of a girl sitting on the stone railing of the embankment, throwing off her shoes and leaned back. A monument dedicated to the girl-tourist, is a one of the favorite touristic destination. May be not the most famous one but at least one the cutest one.

Every passerby wants to photograph with her for luck, grub her hand or put a coin in her shoe for good luck. Even Russian ex-President Dmitry Medvedev photographed near the monument when he was visiting 1150th anniversary of Veliky Novgorod.
