The Pskov fortress was considered unapproachable — a citadel of the Kremlin + defensive walls round Dovmontov city + external defensive works around city (from the last there were only fragments of walls). The rivers Great and Pskova gave additional natural protection.

Another name — Cover in a corner. The surprising small church of XV-XVI centuries which by miracle have remained up to now. These are two churches united by common wall, therefore such a little strange appearance.

Poles during a semi-annual siege of Pskov in 1581-1582 could not overcome a city and have been compelled to retire. Peace treaty signing between Russia and Poland became a result of valorous defence. And in 1881 year about it have remembered, and have decided to put this monument which by miracle has remained up to now, having endured German occupation and two storms.

Pskov is surprising an abundance of ancient churches, strict fortification architecture of the Kremlin (despite a mix of Russian traditions of building with European). It is recommended to visiting!
