  • The temple is quite far from the usual tourist routes in Zavelich'e, near the Bank of the river. Domes are shlemovidnuju, more ancient than the onion, form, and resembles the oldest built in Jaroslavovom's Court in Veliky Novgorod. The Cathedral served as the burial place of princesses of Pskov, including Prince's aunt Efrosinia Dovmonta-Topic (monasticism). The Interior practically has not survived, but most of the walls survived the centuries-old miseries and war and shrine almost original, rather than assembled piece by piece from the ruins. In the spring of monks around him smash the pretty garden.

  • During the visit to Pskov, we visited a great number of temples, but it was St. John the Baptist Church of our company is remembered and liked by all. Here is a very nice, quiet and cozy. Amazing light. I don't want to leave. Us amazed that no one was for all the time we spent in it. Yes, it is a little away from the main attractions, but it's a must visit!
