About Pskov
Pskov is one of the most ancient Russian cities.
In 903, Pskov was first mentioned in the chronicle. But it was founded more than 3,000 years ago, and already in the 7th century our forefathers began building the Pskov Kremlin on a hill upon the confluence of rivers Pskova and Velikaya. The name of the river Velikaya means literally 'Great' or 'Grand' in Russian.
