Pskov Kreml/ Krom, Pskov
(4.7/5 based on 500+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Very susceptible and beautifully, even despite the overcast and gloomy day. While in the Pskov Kremlin, as if transported back to hundreds of years ago, and immediately remembered a time when pskovichi were Western outpost of Russia and one of the first met the enemy, and when Ivan the terrible destroyed Pskov democracy. Very majestic service at Trinity Church. The temple itself is solemn and majestically beautiful inside. To view from the observation tower of the Kremlin of Pskov one must have time because she works with 10 to 17, and wanting very much.

  • Was with a group of friends-travelers. Were with the Guide. Very nice Cathedral. Cross was also on site, which looked very beautiful in the dark.

  • Pskov-charming ancient town, a monument of ancient Russian architecture. Pskov is the spiritual center of Russia. Went in the fall, but was lucky with the weather. We had one day to see the main attractions. Ride happy.

  • Very interesting place! At the time of the walk there, watched the excavation near the exterior walls, a lot higher than they seem! Sorry no examination poloshhadok on the walls. (but there is a good view of the Kremlin on the other side of the Great River, near the chapel). Admission is free. Be sure to explore the Trinity Cathedral.

  • Were in July 2016. There did the reconstruction of walls and excavations. We showed true masonry and foundations. Indeed, those buildings that are restored in the post-war years, very similar to the original, but not the spirit of antiquity. But we were lucky, so very excited!

  • Very nice, but I'd like to see without scaffolding and other attributes of repair.
