  • A very large area, here everybody will find something interesting. Beautiful renovated Shrine, decoration of the place. There is also a convent, near which is the Church, here you can buy very good books and souvenirs.

  • I tried not to cry in memory of those who died here. Overpower itself even in this ... The fortress is open 24 hours a day, always goes to musical accompaniment. Night-all highlighted. the Museum is open from 9 am

  • For tourists, think of it as a long walk in a fortress and memorial soaked with history. It's got fantastic nature and knowing what happened sends shivers down the spine. Having a guide recommended, but at least bring an online webpage or guide with you.
  • After watching the movie The Fortress, visiting this place was really, really amazing. To remember how brave these soviet soldiers were by fighting the Nazis during 40 days when the soviet army was outnumbered and didn't have the weapons for it. They are heroes. True heroes.
  • This is Brest’s number one must see. It’s nice to walk around the fortress and admire the monuments and churches.
  • Interesting where the Belarus military fought against the German army at the beginning of WWII. Very similar to the Alamo in the U.S. except women and children were involved in the massacre.
  • A must see for everyone. Whenever one forgets how awful war is - the memories of recent past that are in the air of this place should be remembered
