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.

  • Lovely Pushkin places. Pskov-calm and cosy, comfortable Quay, leading to the Kremlin and allows you to get around it in a circle. Not anywhere conveniently with sidecar (places of cobblestones, and if rain, Sandy trails all drown in puddles).

  • Were in February in Pskov. Reached the Kremlin, where employee came up to us and offered a guided tour. People loving and knowing your city-with pleasure listened and watched. It was as new to me (he attended earlier in 2013 and was in addition to the familiar local).

  • Fun to dip into the past and see what people lived. A ticket bought in the upper and lower chambers. Children invited to tour and they really liked it. For the overall development of all recommend.
