  • Holy Trinity Church is a full-fledged business card city, no one album dedicated dedicated to the Pskov land, is complete without a photo of the building. Modern Trinity Cathedral is the fourth temple built on this site. It was erected only in the late 17 century, so it looks sleeker, many places of worship of the ancient city. In addition to the religious function of the temple carried and administrative responsibilities. In front of the temple on the Vichova square princes were elected and took important decisions the general ballot. Inside the Cathedral delights huge iconostasis stands out against the background of bare white walls. Also there are a lot of unique icons and relics of several saints of Pskov.

  • Temple produces a unique impression. Allowed to photograph, but please NO FLASH! This is very hurting to ancient icons. Advise to visit the shrine, imbued with the spirit of our history, the spirit of Holiness and understand the true name of the "Holy Russia"

  • Definitely worth a visit Trinity Cathedral, even if you're an unbeliever! It is difficult to find words that truly reflect the impression from the Cathedral: power, splendor, serenity, joy ... Here is an incomplete description of the emerging inside feelings when climbing on high, wide stairs, get inside. High arches, jeweled carving an iconostasis, an oasis from the hustle and bustle is a place where you can be alone with him.
