    This Fort remained the best, if you want to get in touch with the great patriotic war you here ... a unique place where you can go in those terrible times. Walking around the Fort and all of its corridors you feel the spirit of the time, it seems that now will run out from around the corner Gerry ... passing mine is breathtaking and you start to submit in the head as the military action took place.

    Despite the fact that the Fort is not fully preserved, the history is such that he envied any French Castle. Worth seeing, worth spending precious time on this route

    Kohl too were in Kaliningrad, is well worth a visit, of course. Inspire respect for the thickness of the walls and arches of red brick and various narrow passageways. There are rooms where it is possible to pass only squatting. Needless to say, the Germans were able to build.
