  • The first church on this site-a wooden church was built back in the 14th century. Interestingly, founded his merchant Christopher Karel Dol, German nationality (came to Pskov, was baptized under the name of Basil). Stone Church in Pskov style was built later-in the 15th century. Learn the Pskov style, strictly speaking, is simple: the traditional ornamentation on the drum of the main dome ("begunets —" and "landscaping"). I advise to visit the temple and see the beautiful painted altar. The temple is open to the 19-00. Find it easy-almost immediately in the park behind the monument to Princess Olga.

  • Chapel of St. Basil the great on a hill located in the children's Park in the city. One of the oldest and magnificent temples of the city, built in the early 15th century it was hanging Bell, raised on a battle with troops during the siege of Pskov Bathory at the end of the XVI c. Temple, very beautiful inside and is popular among the locals. Visited it during the service, it was not very crowded.

  • This church is one of the most famous surviving Pskov churches! Founded in 1415, built with Vasyl Tower midsize City (walls have not survived). This tower hanging Bell, who raised up in arms Pskov. And the temple is similar to the mighty, stocky little Warrior. Very insane inside the temple. Go-dive in the 15 century.
