'''Yaroslav's Court''' (''Yaroslavovo Dvorishche'' [Ярославово Дворище] in Russian) was the princely compound in the city of [[Novgorod the Great]]. Today it is roughly the area around the Trade Mart, the Church of St. Nicholas, the Church of St. Procopius, and the Church of the Myrrh-bearing Women. The Trade Mart renovated and heavily modified in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, is all that is left of the princely palace itself. <ref>A. I. Semenov, ''Iaroslavovo Dvorishche i Torg'' (Novgorod: gazeta “Novgorodskaia Pravda,” 1958).</ref> The prince also had a compound called the ''Riurikovo Gorodishche'' south of the Marketside of the city.
Yaroslav's Court is named after [[Yaroslav the Wise]] who, while prince of Novgorod (988-1015), built a palace there. The Novgorodian veche often met in front of Yaroslav's Court and in 1224 several pagan sourcers were burned at the stake there.
