Pskov Feudal Republic (Псковская феодальная республика in Russian) was a Russian medieval state between the second half of the 13th century and early 16th century.
After the disintegration of Kievan Rus in the 12th century, the city of Pskov with its surrounding territories along the Velikaya River, Chudskoye Lake, Pskovskoye Lake, and Narva River became a part of the Novgorod Republic.
The Treaty of Bolotovo of 1348 granted Pskov de jure independence, in accordance with which the Novgorod boyars refused to send their posadniks to Pskov etc. The city of Pskov remained dependent on Novgorod only in ecclesiastical matters.
Pskov (Russian: Псков, ancient spelling Пльсковъ; Estonian: Pihkva; Finnish: Pihkova; German: Pleskau; Lithuanian: Pleskava) is an ancient city, located in the north-west of Russia about 20 km east from the Estonian border, on the river Velikaya.
The city of Pskov serves as the administrative center of Pskov Oblast.
Pskov is exceedingly rich in tiny, squat, picturesque churches, dating mainly from the 15th and the 16th centuries.
