They are the battle with the Suzdalians in 1170, the battle Rakovskay in 1268, Lithuanian campaign of the novgorodian regiment 1659-1660. Due to historical episodes we learn how the novgorodians witnessed the miracle of icon Our Lady of the Sign. This icon became the patroness of the Novgorod. Moreover we learn about the last huge battle with the Germans in the XIII century, and about the novgorodian discharging regiment, which played the important role in the history of Russia.

The expressive poses of the warriors let us imagine the personalities, feel the tention of the cruel slashing and study the armament of the warriors in detail.

The installation The slashing was cruel-hearted made in original format tells about the important military role of Novgorod in the history of Russia during the middle ages and up to the XVII century. The novgorodians not only protected their own city but also set out on the march to defend the interests of the Ruthenia thus forming a united and powerful state.

Reference information
The Palace Tower was built in 1484 - 1499 on the foundation of the XV century and intended for military purposes. Over the course of history the Tower was reconstructed and significantly renovated. In the XIX century the archives of the Trial Chamber and the Exchequer Chamber were stored there. In 1903 upon the initiative of the Imperial Society Shipping Department it was decided to adapt the Tower for the shipping school and the Museum of Shipping; with the library and the conference room inside. Moreover the Tower was supposed to be used as the lighthouse for the Ilmen ships. But the archeologists of that time prevented the reconstruction of the Tower. It was damaged a lot during the Second World War. In 1966 - 1967 the Tower was reconstructed upon the project of A.V. Vorobev to the form of the XV century. You can see the beautiful view from the Tower on the river Ilmen, Nereditsy, Rurik’s hill fort , St. Georges monastery, green inundated fields.
