  • We were exactly in the Fort! A lot of stuff there saw pritronulis' there is also a history of the town hero! It was created to protect the approaches to the city, along with 20 forts — they were a ring around the city, and called it "Night Perina Königsberg." the most interesting part-built themselves, the embodiment of the concept of "fortification". Inside opened the photo exhibition "storming of Königsberg. In the outdoor area is arranged open exposition of military equipment — marine and land, including the famous Katyusha. With children is very interesting and fun ...

  • The place itself was not much interest at first. You can be like, read about Fort, about the history of his assault. BUT everything changed with the advent of the Guide Natalia (alas, not the surname). The two hours flew by like a Flash. I couldn't even suppose that the fortification and its history can be so interesting to tell! After visiting the attractions remained clearest recollection! If you decide to go, be sure to join the tour. Savage there will go dull.
