Photographer's Note

Псковский Кремль (Кром), первые укрепления построены были еще в Х веке, то что есть сейчас построено в XV-XVI. Вид с другой стороны реки Великой, от Иановского монастыря.

Or rather other side of the river. Usually tourists, visiting Pskov, see Krom (Pskov's fortress) from one POV, here is POV on the other side of Velikaya river. Here you can see main body of the castle, Trinity Cathedral and entrance to the river Pskova (gap between two towers at the left). In medieval times special fences made a barrier there, so no enemy vessel was able to enter the heart of the city.
First fortifications were built here in X century, walls and towers that we saw today were made in XIV-XVI centuries.
