Pskov


Pskov is a cozy old city, a monument of ancient Russian architecture with a 2000-year history. Its ancient fortresses, cathedrals and architectural ensembles are known   the world over. Pskov absorbed the history and traditions of the Russian land, and became one of the spiritual centers of Russia. The Holy Equal-to-the-Apostles Princess Olga and her grandson, the baptizer of Russia Prince Vladimir were born in these places. The heart of Pskov is the impregnable Kremlin, well preserved until our time.

 
People come here not only to wander walking through the old streets, but also to bow to holy places. On the Pskov land operates the Holy Dormition Pskovo-Pechersky Monastery - one of the largest Orthodox male monasteries with a cave complex. Prayer service in it lasts from the day of its foundation - 550 years. In the Pskov region there is the Izborsk fortress - from its walls an impressive view of the valley and Geravie lake opens. Just an hour's drive south of Pskov, there is the Pushkin Reserve, where the famous poet lived and worked.

 
Souvenirs
 
Traditional Pskov crafts are, first of all, hand forging - forged candlesticks, staples and many other blacksmith's products. Amazing pottery: pots, mugs, whistles, handmade toys. All this can be found in souvenir shops.
