Getting there & away

Most agencies run excursions from Pskov; check at the hotel where you're staying or contact the tourist office to find one that matches your schedule. Alternatively, you can do it yourself by catching a bus to Pushkinskie Gory from the Pskov bus station. There are several buses a day (R95, 2½ hours).

The Pushkinskie Gory bus station is about 8km from the Pushkin house; there may or may not be a short-distance bus to cover the last leg. You could also hire a taxi (R80 one way) and return on foot as the walk is pleasant. To get there, take a left out of the bus station and walk for 1km along the road where you'll see the Svyatagorsk Monastery on your left. From there a road leads off to the right, which leads to Mikhailovskoe - keep following the signs from here.

Another option is hitching a ride on an excursion bus leaving from Hotel Druzhba in Pushkinskie Gory or asking a local driver. Be sure to find out when the last bus back to Pskov departs from Pushkinskie Gory. At research time, the last bus back left at around 3.25pm Monday to Thursday. On weekends, the last bus departs at 6.40pm.
