  • Nicely place
  • Since ancient times, troitsky Cathedral (1682-1699, the first cathedral is put back in the 10th century) was the main shrine is not only the city of Pskov, but the whole of the Pskov land. For Pskovichej it had the same meaning, that of St. Sophia for Novgorod. War cry: "stand for the Holy Trinity!" brought people martial courage during the battle. Pskovichi attributed the victory over the enemy not myself, but the grace of the Holy Trinity. Today, the stairs leading to the Cathedral, almost reaches the wall of chrome, but until the 19th century it was much shorter-and steeper. The lower tier of the Cathedral has also been used as a tomb for the noble people of the city-to the present day came 9 sarcophagi in podcerkove. Inside the Cathedral amazes volume, height, plenty of light and wonderful harmony. The iconostasis and icons on it belong to the turn of the 17th and 18th centuries, but there are more ancient (15th-16th centuries)-for example, Chigirskoj of the Virgin with small icons on the frame, Vsevolod-Gavriil, pictured with a model of the Trinity Cathedral in his hand, Nicholas; unique Holguin cross created in 1623 to sample more ancient.

  • In the Sabor iconostasis, such more nowhere. Such beauty words can not describe, it should be seen.

  • The best and the most sacred place in the city is of course Trinity Cathedral. I like it so much, that I decided to make a layout of this unique structure.
