On a walk through the picturesque area of ​​Zapskovye, you will learn about real historical events that have over time become overgrown with legends, smile at the stories about the inhabitants of the city and imagine how Pskov looked in the past. Group excursion Duration 1.5 hours Group size up to 15 people Children Possible with children How it goes On foot 400 rubles per person

What awaits you

Along the Pskova river Our route passes along the alleys of the Finnish park "Kuopio", as well as along the former American, and now the Soviet embankment. You will find the place where the Rybniki market and the Koliasny market were located, and you will hear about industrial baths. You will see the Church of Peter and Paul from Bui, and also learn what the “holy triangle” is and where it was located. At the dam, let's talk about mills - there used to be a lot of them on the river - and how much income they brought. And we will end the excursion at the Gremyacha Tower with a rich history and a whole chest of conjectures and legends

There were and were not cities You will see a schematic map of the Zapskovye area, and looking at postcards from the 19th and 20th centuries, imagine what provincial Pskov looked like in the past. You will find a story about bridges and houses of wealthy citizens who have chosen the shores of Pskov - and about the life of ordinary people: where and how they settled, what they celebrated, what they traded and what they built. We will share folk beliefs and tales: about mills, about a captive prince and countless treasures. And, of course, we will reveal historical facts that may seem fictitious: the visit to Pskov of Peter the Great, the "execution" of the bell, and even escaped crocodiles!
