  • As in Gothic cathedrals, while Russian Temple, dostroennom already during the reign of Peter the first, you cannot see the ceiling, if not zaprokinut' head. Height iconostasis of about forty meters, and a total of 78 metres Cathedral! Surprisingly, the Cathedral was completed in the year 1699, just 4 years before the founding of St. Petersburg, under construction in the European Baroque Trezzini, and only the height of the Cathedral, unusual for the previous Russian churches, prefigures the dominant-spires of the first St. Petersburg cathedrals, churches, civic buildings, which remained quite a bit. This Cathedral-like the last burst of creativity of architects which departed pre-Petrine Russia. Are guided tours of the Cathedral, particularly enjoyed the story one of the curiosities of the Petersburg group of tourists about how Pskov survived after the visit of Ivan the terrible, who came here after the defeat and execution of Veliky Novgorod. On the way to the Pskov his met Pskov whacky, which much proshhalos', Ivan the terrible, and stretched to the pious and superstitious, a piece of fresh meat at the peak. "What I pull meat, now post!" resented King.-"thou krovushki in Novgorod and Pskov drank want to devour the meat?" answered fearlessly whacky. In Pskov Ivan came to Trinity (previous hit) Cathedral, defended the service, came out on the porch to the people, and then flashed lightning, Thunder, gjanul and Ivan Vasilyevich horse was killed. Interpreting this as a bad sign, the King renounced the executions pskovichej and did not kill a single person here. He then drove in Petseri monastery where, according to legend, single-handedly cut off head Abbot, who is suspected of treason and then repenting, too, according to legend, at the hands of rendered his body on the way to the top, and this path is called the still bloody. Sword of Prince Dovmonta, who was awarded the pskovichi elected to the reign of princes, was kept in the Holy Trinity Cathedral, and now it can be seen in the Museum in Pogankinyh wards.

  • Of course it's not Moscow temples, well-groomed, expensive but what icons, stunning the iconostasis. Entering the temple and lifting the head-simply breathtaking grandeur of the buildings!
