titlePskov Krom
locationRussia
infoPskov still preserves much of its medieval walls, built from the 13th century on. Its medieval citadel is called either the Krom or the Kremlin. Within its walls rises the 256-foot (78 m)-tall Trinity Cathedral, founded in 1138 and rebuilt in the 1690s. These Kremlin walls endured many sieges and battles. It withstood twenty-six sieges in the 15th century alone. Most famously, it withstood a prolonged siege by a 100,000-strong army during the final stage of the Livonian War (1581–1582). The king of Poland Stephen Báthory undertook some thirty-one attacks to storm the city, which was defended mainly by civilians. Even after one of the city walls was broken, the citizens managed to fill the gap and repel the attack. Eventually, Stephen Báthory's efforts to take the city has gone in vain and the Peace of Jam Zapolski was concluded before the siege ended.
