Photographer's Note

Three (last) pictures of this Pskov Kremlin. Here the view of the Trinity Church and walls of the fortress from the side of the river.
I hope you like the presentation of this less known but interesting place. There are many nice old Orthodox churches on the Unesco Heritage List.

The Pskov School of Architecture emerged under the influence of the Byzantine and Novgorod traditions and reached its height in the 15th and 16th centuries, when it exerted considerable influence in large areas of the Russian state and its stylistic and decorative characteristics became widely referenced. Whilst Pskov architects worked on monuments throughout Russia, including in Moscow, Kazan and Sviyazhsk, the ten selected churches in Pskov illustrate a local representation of the early development, experimental grounds and masterly references of the Pskov School.
