  • Never thought that a trip to the spring vacation with three children: a boy and two girls 9 13 years will be as instructive and spectacular. During this heroic territory, all from young to old are in a State of deep sadness and pride. A bit unlucky with the weather, but this did not prevent the children understand that war. Bad weather even added impressions about the severity of the tests on this heroic generation who died here young boys, women and children with heart of these heroes.

  • This place become a place for tourists, the spirit of war disappears and just "good red army" lasts. Before it was a good place to show what war makes to people and with people, now just tourist attraction.
  • Its history is more impressive than its architectural beauty. Thanks to my local guide Vadim, I learnt a lot about its history. Love the comment that "nazi takes photos of everything they do, including crime". Soviet style sculptures are equally impressive. Nearby there's the border of Belarus and Poland. Funny that it fascinates me as I've never been to a controlled border.
  • Too much pride, typical communist style. Loud words about the "great victory" everywhere. Dear Mr Lukashenko, put an end to the communism at last and move your country towards the Western world. No info in English, difficult to understand how to cross the road to head towards the city (it's under the bridge but it's impossible to spot it)
  • You can still see the bullet marks on the walls from World War 2. Amazing place. On the National Holiday, you can hear soldiers shooting their rifles. It makes you feel that horrific atmosphere of the war a bit.
  • Watch dokumentations or films about this fortress. This place is wonderfull and cool.
