  • Church of the Virgin Mary with Uspenja Paromenja is located at the Riga etc-those close to Olginskim bridge directly opposite the Kremlin. Old church, built in the middle of the 15th century on the site of the ferry across the Great. Redone several times in XVI-XVIII centuries. Inside are fairly modest, quiet and dark. Told that save electricity include only for the evening service. Apparently the Church not very visited. Nearby is the belfry (16th century), restored in 2008, donations and patrons of the city police.

  • First mentioned in the annals of the Church under a 1444, 1521, again reported on the Church of the Holy Virgin on Souspenija "Zaveliche" for the first time stated that the Church was "stone", was on the ferry, passing through River Great. Large complex architectural ensemble of the Church attests to the skill of the Pskov architects. The temple is oriented towards the former crossing the great river (now: Olginsky bridge) on the ancient road that led westward (present-day rizhsky Avenue), while facing the Trinity Cathedral and the detinets. Curious about the completion of assumption Church: head with a cross, on which is placed the Crossbeam Dove is a symbol of the Holy Spirit. According to legend, while Dove sits on the Church of the assumption, the grace of the Holy Spirit will not deviate from Pskov. Pjatiproletnaja belfry was added to the Church much later and stood apart from the temple building. Bell had nine bells. In the 16 century spans the belfry were covered with a gable a single roof. Belfry of the Church of the Dormition is considered the largest of the preserved till nowadays.
