    Novgorod Kremlin

    The Detinets ("Young Man's Compound," from the same root as the Russian word deti = children) is the ancient name for the Kremlin or fortress in Novgorod the Great, which stands on the left bank of the Volkhov River about two miles north of where it empties out of Lake Ilmen.
