Located in the heart of Pskov, at the junction of the Pskova and Velikaya rivers, the thousand-year-old Kremlin (aka Krom) is the main attraction of the city.
Its ancient walls and towers have witnessed so much, the place seems to breath history. Just being there, walking around and looking at the city through the loopholes is a very special spiritual experience.
The highlight of the Krom complex is no doubt the functioning snow-white Trinity Cathedral with its magnificent eight-level iconostasis.
Make sure to get to the observation deck, too — the views on the river are amazing!
The entrance to the complex is free, but the museums charge fees. You can also take a guided tour of the Kremlin — this is the best way to learn about the history of Pskov, the city that is almost 250 years older than Moscow.
To remember Pskov, you can buy a souvenir in one of the gift stalls at the entrance to Krom.
