Photographer's Note

Псков. Церковь Василия на Горке, 1411 год.
***
Church of Vasiliy on the Hill, built in 1411 by Prince Vasiliy Dol. It's a classic Pskovian medieval church, one-headed, with a lot of additional small chambers at its sides. Inside it's white, without frescoes and very, so to say, Protestant-looking. As Pskov was a merchant's republic, Protestant ethic was close to its inhabitants, even if they were true Orthodox Christians.
