Photographer's Note

Exactly one year ago: Trinity Cathedral in the Pskov Kremlin. At seven a.m. it was closed, I haven't been inside.

The Pskov Krom is an ancient citadel in Pskov. It is located at the junction of the Velikaya River and smaller Pskova river. The citadel is of medieval origin, with the surrounding walls constructed starting in the late 15th century.

The Trinity Cathedral (ru. Троицкий собор or Троицкий храм) is located in the Pskov Krom or Kremlin. The current building was built beginning in 1691 and consecrated in 1699.

In the Soviet period, the cathedral was part of the schismatic Living Church movement in the 1920s before its closure in the 1930s, at which time it was turned into a museum. It was reopened as a church during the Nazi occupation. It remained open after the war.

The cathedral is 78 m tall and contains the tombs of saint princes Vsevolod Mstislavich (also known as Gavril - died in 1138) and Dovmont (died in 1299).
