The Pskov Krom (or Pskov Kremlin) (Russian: Псковский Кром) is an ancient citadel in Pskov, Russia. In the central part of the city, the Krom is located at the junction of the Velikaya River and smaller Pskova river. The citadel is of medieval origin, with the surrounding walls constructed starting in the late 1400s.
The Krom was the administrative and spiritual centre of the Pskov Republic in the 15th century.
