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.

  • It is a pity that such historical monuments are on the verge of extinction. The fault of the officials and negligent customers. It was strange to look at living history and murals of local teenagers on the walls of chrome. The "Game" of some sort if the Kremlin in Moscow such a saw would not believe your eyes.

  • Pskov Kremlin stands on a hill, protected on both sides by rivers at an acute angle running into one another. Ideal for protection against invaders. The State of the walls and towers here in almost perfect condition after extensive restoration. On the territory of the Kremlin is the main temple of the Pskov land-Trinity Cathedral. For centuries the Kremlin never lived. He was the administrative, cultural and religious center here going veche, stored food reserves. There is also a "Pompei"-excavations of the legendary Dovmont's town.

  • 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.
