"From Pskov, Russia" Top 5 Page for this destination Wawel Cathedral Tip by matcrazy1

Wawel Cathedral, Krakow: 92 reviews and 159 photos

by matcrazy1

There is tombstone of Casimir IV (King of Poland and Duke of Lithuania) in Swietokrzyska Chapel of Wawel Cathedral.

Don't miss to look at marvelous polychromies (wall-paintings) created by artists from Pskov (Russia now, Great Duchy of Poland and Lithuania that time) whenever you visit Swietokrzyska chapel. They are the most valuable example of Russian wall-paintings in Poland. I liked them a lot. Sorry, no picture (no permission).

Pskov is one from the oldest cities in Russia (1100 yo). Pskov lies in the north - west of Russia, on the border with Estonia, between St. Petersburg (280 km far away from St. Petersburg) and Riga (Latvian). A must see, I suppose (churches and chapels). MORE: click here.
