Pskov-Caves Monastery

Old slavic word «pechory» (caves), paternal such and the name at a monastery — the first monks lodged in the caves existing in territory of a monastery. Also Kiev-Caves monastery.

Monastery old, so it had powerful fortification.

Wonderful urn!

In it all is fine: both idea, and realisation! And the handle shod.

And a monastery very beautiful and bright.
