Old Izborsk

more than a year ago
When visiting Pskov it is almost mandatory to also visit the neighboring town, Old Izborsk. Just like Pskov, Izborsk used to be a fortress rather than a city. It was one of the first towns that invading enemies would encounter, so Izborsk was one of the first Russian towns to build stone fortifications for protection. What truly draws tourists (especially Russians) to Izborsk are its Slovenian water springs, which supposedly each hold a certain virtue. Do not be surprised to see people walking around with big jugs or bottles - in fact, be sure to bring your own! Various expositions at Izborsk will cost between 40-100Rbl, and audio guides (either in English or Russian) for the town are available at a cost of 500Rbl. To get to Izborsk, take bus 126 from Pskov central station (08:00, 12:00, 13:20, and 17:05) or bus route no.207 (11:00 except Mon, 15:30, 19:38 except Tue and Thu). Bus tickets can be bought at the station.
