Landmark Tourist Spot
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.

  • The most interesting place to visit in Pskov center. Kremlin is the historical place and has it's history from 10th century.
  • PERFECT PERFORMANCE_!!!
  • Were in the Pskov Kremlin on May 7. The weather was great, the Sun is bright and +15. Walked with the family 3:00 and everyone really liked it. Embankments around the Kremlin, excellent! Paths, benches, manicured lawns, one word is very cool! In the Kremlin there is a Museum, observation tower, shooting (archery, throwing axe). Recommend! Great place to relax!

  • Worth a visit if you've never before that weren't there. Prices for exhibitions for 150 rubles. A total of 3 or 4. Watch there especially. Entrance to the Kremlin itself free.

  • A wonderful place for a leisurely stroll. Vintage Tower and the walls of 15 century. Delightful landscapes of the velikaya River with domes of temples along the banks of-fascinate. The cradle of Russian history. really liked the Pskov.
