St. Trinity Pskov Caves Monastery is often called the Lavra, which stresses its significance for the Russian Orthodox Church (officially, there are only two Lavras in Russia – Trinity-Sergius Lavra in Sergiev Posad and Alexander Nevsky Lavra in St. Petersburg). The monastery was founded in 1473
The city of Izborsk (now a village) is 30 kilometers from Pskov on the way to Riga. There you must visit the nearby ancient sights: the Izborsk fortress and the Truvor`s Gorodishche, as well as the nearby Slavonic Springs and the Lake Gorodishchenskoye.
