Posted on 05 January 2012

Pskov-Caves Monastery was lit in 1473, when the first cave church - Assumption. Its founders have followed the traditions laid down by the first hermits of the Christian East, who lived in caves. In the land of all looks like a conventional church, houses and farm buildings, surrounded by walls. As a fortress monastery also unique: its center moved to the hem between the hills and ravines to hide the edge of the eye of the enemy. Stone walls were erected at abbot abbot Cornelius in 1558-1565, respectively. Despite the important role of the abbot of the Livonian War, according to "The Tale of Prince Kurbsky" Ivan the Terrible was decapitated monk, but repented of their deeds, lifted the lifeless body and carried it into the center of the monastery. This road has since been called the "Bloody descent," and the name of Cornelius entered in the famous royal "obituary" on a par with other victims of royal wrath. Access to the free wall of the monastery (but do not forget that women are supposed to skirt and shawl - all available at the entrance to the monastery). And city residents are willing to provide their services to place for the night.
