Pskov Kreml/ Krom, Pskov

4.8
At Pskov Kreml/ Krom, see the mighty walls that endured more than 100 wars and dozens of sieges before collapsing into ruins after the Nazi occupation. The walls were constructed in the late 1400s around a medieval citadel rising on a rocky promontory between two rivers. Today, the entrance to the Krom lies through a "window" cut above the ancient gate. Walk to the southwest corner, and you will notice that you are standing on top of the arches of ancient buildings. The tower in the northwest corner was Pushkin's favorite spot for looking at the river. In the evening you can hear the sound of bells and listen to a choir singing during a divine service at the adjacent Trinity Cathedral.

  • Certainly it's the most interesting place in Pskov. Unfortunately, the city suffered heavily during World War II, so it's not teeming with sights. We were with a private guide, very advisable, because inside the Kremlin look especially listen to nothing but interesting. And another tip: If you go and in Velkij Novgorod, Pskov, see before, and not after (as planned). Better ascending to not disappoint.

  • Monumental, be sure to visit. Always try to visit such places. And in the Pskov region there are more than one, be sure to stop in Izborsk.

  • Crom is located on the river Velikaya. From the railway station can be reached by bus (10 min to stop Lenin square). The territory is subject to several expositions (you may need to purchase a ticket) and the Cathedral. As in Pskov, chrome is a must visit!
