Pskov city. Churches on photos.
Pskov is very ancient Russian city, here are 40 churches in the Pskov now. In ancient times here was much more churches.
The earliest go back to the 12 th century, the latest to the early 20 th. Numerous pretty little churches were built in the 14 th. and 15 th. centuries. The designs with their apses and drums are ornamented remind us very much of the fine Russian open work embroidery.
The Pskovites used local construction material - limestone slabs - for the building of fortifications, fortified walls with towers, churches and monasteries, civilian houses, merchant 's chambers.
