Dukhova Gora is a cultural, historical and archaeological monument. It is located in the tract of Litovka, near the village of Kirovo, Opochetsky district, in the Pskov region. In the era of the Slavs here on top stood the statue of Perun, the chief deity of the pagan Slavs. There exists data provig that Tsar Ivan «the Terrible» issued a decree before his death to compile a list of holy places which included Dukhova Gora. Thus, already at the end of the 16th century this mountain was already known as one of the holy places in Russia and like today it was a place of pilgrimage for many believers. Many people claim that when climbing a mountain, the compass needle behaves strangely influenced by the electromagnetic field acting in this area. The origin and the mechanism of the action of this phenomenon have not yet been thoroughly studied.

The spring "Gosudarevy kluchok" is located near the former village of Puzyrkovo, south of the village of Kozino, Opochetsky district, Pskov region. The springs consists of two which are knocking out from the depths of the earth ,from the slope of the deep basin about a meter apart from each other. In one of the springs the water is clean and pleasant to taste, in the other the water is stiff and ferruginous, it colours the pebbles in the stream and everything that gets into the water in reddish color.

Local people consider the waters of a light spring to be holy. According to the legend long ago Emperor Alexander II the Liberator hunted in these places and was treated with water from the spring in Puzyrkovo. The Tsar was foretold that a bright spring would give him not only health, but also longevity if he had regularly drunk that water. But having left from the saving spring to St. Petersburg, the tsar became a victim of terrorists.
