Of course, you will come back rested, with a developed soul (and this is a must-have bonus when you rest in your homeland, of course, properly organized and thoughtful). But that’s not all.
Pskov region has an amazing property. Therefore, you will be surprised now, and then you will probably think: why not check it out for yourself?
Not everyone can achieve this result. Here, of course, the inner potential and readiness of this Genius in himself to reveal is important.
But vivid examples confirm this fact.
Alexander Sergeevich Pushkin from 1817 to 1836 (almost his entire mature life) was inextricably linked with the Pskov Region. Here was the estate of his mother in Mikhailovsky.
And it was here that more than a hundred of his works were created: “Boris Godunov”, several chapters of “Eugene Onegin”, “I remember a wonderful moment”, “The Village”, “I visited again” and other masterpieces of poetry.
The charm of rural life, the charm of Russian nature, the deepening and shaping of historical interests, the comprehension of the soul of the Russian people and spiritual experience contributed to intensive creativity.
The Pskov Region is the birthplace of composer Modest Petrovich Mussorgsky, a place of rest and inspiration for Nikolai Andreyevich Rimsky-Korsakov. Sofia Kovalevskaya spent her childhood here – the world’s first female professor of mathematics, the artist, traveler, writer Nikolai Roerich acquainted with Russian antiquity, ancient epics and legends.
It was here that the origins of the Russian statehood were laid, and more than once the troops of the great European powers crashed against the invincible walls of the Pskov fortresses. Pskov land is the place where Princess Olga lived, Prince Igor and Prince Vladimir, where the local holy fool could rationalize Tsar Ivan the Terrible, and Peter I himself erected bastions.
You can continue for a long time, but it’s time to say the main words: The Pskov land has an invaluable historical and cultural heritage. Give this heritage to yourself and your children!
Wake up interest in creativity and history, visit the places that inspired the Greatest People, touch the Russian fairy tale and appreciate the fullness of life.
We chose the 5 most impressive and obligatory places to visit this region, as well as the most unusual hotels for educational holidays with children:
The Pskov Kremlin is one of the most famous and famous fortresses in Russia, which has withstood many sieges in its history. In addition to the walls of the Pskov Kremlin, you have the opportunity to see its inner territory, rich in its sights. Of course, the heart of the whole ensemble is the magnificent Trinity Cathedral.
And also, Dovmontov city – a stone building of the XIII century, attached for the additional strengthening of the Kremlin, the expansion of the square of the fortress and the protection of the urban suburb of Pskov.
Peipsi Lake is one of the largest lakes in European Russia, after Ladoga and Onega.
On the ice of Lake Peipsi on April 5, 1242, the famous battle of the Russian army of the young Prince Alexander Nevsky against the troops of the Livonian Order, known to us as the Battle of the Ice, took place.
The water in the lake is unusually clear and warm, so do not forget swimsuits and fishing rods.
The State Memorial Historical-Literary and Natural-Landscape Museum-Reserve of A.S. Pushkin “Mikhailovskoye” is a unique monument of Russian culture of national significance, a single spiritual space, united by the “genius of the place” – A.S. Pushkin.
In the history of Russian culture, Mikhailovskoye, Trigorskoye, Petrovskoye, the Holy Mountains (renamed Pushkinskiye Gory in 1924) are known as memorable Pushkin sites associated with the life and work of the great poet. Since the 30s of the XIX century, Mikhailovsky was fixed in the definition of Pushkin’s poetic homeland.
