The city is believed to have been founded in the 10th century or possibly even earlier. There is no surviving contemporary reference to its foundation, and accounts differ. The earliest mention is in 903, when it is said that the Kievian Prince Igor Rurikovich married St. Olga there. This year is sometimes taken as the city's foundation date, and in 1993 there was a great jubilee to celebrate Pskov's 1,100th anniversary.
