Tour Details

One of Russia’s oldest, most historically significant, yet least well-known cities: welcome to Pskov!

It is in Pskov where the rarest monuments of ancient Russian architecture are located: The Kremlin, The Trinity Cathedral, a great number of temples and churches. The unique frescoes of the Transfiguration Cathedral were created by Greek artists in the 12th century. Architectural masterpieces, outstanding works of icon painting are far from a complete list of historical relics of Pskov and represent an enduring value not only for our country, but for the whole world.

You will visit Izborsk – a sleepy ancient village that celebrated its 1150th anniversary in 2012. The main attraction here is the ruined stone fortress and there’s the peaceful Gorodishchenskoye Lake.  It’s a great spot to take a break and get a taste of the Russian rural way of life for a day or so.

Then you will spend a day in a city with a great history – Veliky Novgorod. It is a medieval center of trade and crafts, the cradle of Russian democracy. The city has preserved a huge number of great monuments of architecture and monumental painting.
