Things to do: sightseeing, museums, religious sites
Pskov is a city and the administrative center of Pskov Oblast, Russia, located about 20km east from the Estonian border, on the Velikaya River. Population:HistoryEarly historyPskov is one of the oldest cities in Russia. The name of the city, originally spelled "Pleskov", may be loosely translated as " of purling waters". Its earliest mention comes in 903, which records that Igor of Kiev married a local lady, St. Olga. Pskovians sometimes take this year as the city's foundation date, and in 2003 a great jubilee took place to celebrate Pskov's 1,100th anniversary.The first prince of Pskov was Vladimir the Great's youngest son Sudislav. Once imprisoned by his brother Yaroslav, he was not released until the latter's death several decades later. In the 12th and 13th centuries, the town adhered politically to the Novgorod Republic. In 1241, it was taken by the Teutonic Knights, but Alexander Nevsky recaptured it several months later during a legendary campaign dramatized in Sergei Eisenstein's 1938 movie.
