  • Most beautiful places. For mandatory travel shoes (heels don't pass). Inside the fortress especially watch nothing but stroll down to the keys (mini waterfalls). Better take a guide.

  • Prices at the castle entrance is high enough, all the more so that the inside of the watch. In restaurants the price tag of the Izborsk capital and does not correspond to reality. One visit is enough yet. I hope with time and service and the dostopoimechatelnost "snaps". While clearly a Deuce.
