  • Been several times. If you look at the wonderful film "Brest fortress", directed by Cott get into the atmosphere. Honorary guard pioneers-schoolchildren. Memorial "thirst", voice of Levitan, monument Commissioner Fomin. And of course the Museum told the fate of many of the defenders. Vycarapannaja inscription on the wall: "we were left with two. Farewell to motherland "to tears. Of interesting facts: Reconstructed by General Totlebenom (Crimean War), upgraded General Kabyshevym uchvshemsja, hero of the Soviet Union in the engineering Castle and died in captivity. At one time it was the prison Office where called Bandera. There he buried Shevardnadze-elder brother of the famous Soviet-Georgian politics.

  • Went with family in Belarus. Brest was originally planned as the main purpose of the trip. Son imbued with the film "Brest fortress" and wanted to see her live. In the Museum, together with tickets took a trip (36 rubles). Guide Tatiana held us in halls of the Museum and on the territory of the fortress. Impressed by the evidence of all the bricks, the stories of soldiers who fought without heavy weapons in full surroundings with no hope of help, agonal graffiti and guard of local schoolchildren. Thanks to the brotherly people for preserving the memory of those terrible heroic days.
