  • Visited the fortress during the trip from Pskov in Veliky Novgorod. At the outset, was amazed that the fortress has survived intact to the present day. The visit will be much more interesting with a guide. In the direct surroundings of the fortress it is better not to go for a walk. Found a bunch of broken bottles, syringes and other rubbish.

  • With pleasure visited the fortress. Of course, specially the second time would not go, but if you're somewhere near, then you can go. The fortress itself. On the territory of the Church. Inside features with soul: Garden, playground, etc. Children enjoyed climbing on the wall.

  • Old fortress of Porkhov (1239), founded by Alexander Nevsky, with four towers and Church St. Nicholas inside. In Monday-museums are closed and anyone inside is not, and the entrance is and on the walls of the fortress can be reached. Inside, everything is done with soul: and museums, and a children's playground and trail health with medicinal plants and colorful flower beds.
