  • Resting in Pskov, absolutely accidentally found out about this fortress, thank you Trip Adviser! From Pskov to drive m. 40 on the car and it is definitely worth it! A huge fortress with strong towers dominates the hilly Valley and glittery Lake. History of the fortress and the settlement itself is rooted as much in 8 century wine ️ the fortress area is large, you can go through the wall and enjoy the gorgeous scenery, you can bypass the fortress and go down to the Lake with white swans and Slovenian keys. Keys are small but beautiful waterfall, however, drink water without boiling Rospotrebnadzor advises, because it does not meet the requirements. True, the Park Administration has not so far determined a separate warning placards and people actively drinking and gaining water in a bottle, because believe her Holy near the fortress there are cafes and many souvenir shops.

  • Beautiful, ancient fortress. Liked that you can climb the wall and walk along it. Inside the Fort Worth Church, there's a nice cute Minister talked. At the exit of the Cashier window called us and said that the entrance fee (100 rubles) Is of course not very great but zrelish there for a maximum of 30-50 USD.

  • Izborskaja fortress is one of the most ancient in Russia. Now, despite the fact that much of the restoration requires, it is mind boggling interesting history lovers. Here you can walk on walls, low down the corridor beneath them on the secret go to water, climb up to the observation deck on one of the towers overlooking the square view, appreciate clever double. The brightest impressions!

  • If you like Russia, this is a must. Fine and authentic restoration, have stayed there for more days and i come back every year.
  • Interesting historic place. Must visit in Izborsk
  • If you like historic landscapes and fortresses, it is a place to go.
  • Obilaskom Izborska i njegove tvrđave nastavio sam svoje hodočašće po mestima u kojima je u prošlosti stvarana Rusija. Tvrdjava je građena u XIV. veku. Sa ambijentom u kom se nalazi čini celinu spomenika koji svojom lepotom pleni pažnju posetilaca. Ovde je čuveni ruski knez i vojskovođa Aleksandar Nevski živeo, ratovao i stvarao Rusiju.
  • Castle carries the past greatness of antiquity. There really are ruins that recall centuries-especially for a fortification. But inside the fortress there are very old, such as undercover access to the water. The rest of course new. But Fortress still wondering. You can climb the tower and admire the beautiful view or go to the loopholes. Kids like to climb there.
