The small Russian town of Pechory. The ancient caves. Pskov.

It is owes its name to caves drilled in solid limestone by underground waters. They are naturally ventilated, and have a constant temperature of +5 centigrade.

Here is the monastery cemetery.
The ancient caves - an enormous burial vault for monks, as well as laymen - are of great interest in the Monastery of the Caves. The caves branch off into seven galleries in which nearly ten thousand bodies are buried: some coffins are on the floor, while others are bricked up in the wall. All 7 branch of caves are approximately 218 meters long.
