Pskov Region is rich with architectural and cultural monuments.
The town of Pskov is one of the oldest towns in Russia. One can observe different stone structures including churches, chapels and monasteries. Some of them look like small fortresses as the town had to fight many invaders during its long history.
Izborsk is located not far from the city of Pskov and is famous for its old fortress.
The most interesting sight in Pechory is the beautiful Holy Dormition Pskovo-Pechersky (Pskov-Caves) Monastery which has been functioning without interruption for over 500 years.
