  • Izborsk fortress, one of the most ancient cities, well worth the visit! Don't forget to climb the Tower, excellent views. Sorry clumsily restored fortress, old it blows. But tourists need to drive somewhere))) 15 Years ago, look in Izborske was completely different))

  • Izborskaja fortress was commissioned only once, and that as a result of treachery, and not through military power of the enemy. Now she restored, wall added, to give a correct impression of the size of the fortress in the past. For masonry is immediately obvious where these ancient stones, and restoration. It was interesting to compare the austere castle with Pskov Chrome-for example, here, too, there is a clever double with two sides, but they are made a little differently. You can climb the tower and explore the Castle and the city from the top. An impressive spectacle, and with a guide-also a mass of interesting information. Recommend.

  • Izborsk is considered one of the oldest cities in Russia. Izborskaja fortress is impressive-the ancient, beautiful, interesting. The truth is not, it is the oldest attraction. Nearby there is a place where there was believed to be the oldest fortress in Russia, but the only thing left from her place and any stones. And here's the Izborskaja itself is rather interesting Castle, worth a visit!.
