  • Place of Fame. Place memory glorious heroes. Every time, every year in Brest, definitely come here. I believe that everyone will not prevent at least once to visit the fortress, try to feel the inner strength of these lands, to think about the past and present.

  • Were here for the first time, and the granddaughter of the first time I heard about BOB and fascists. I hope that when she grows up-will remember this. The place is very strong.

  • 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
