  • Was twice near the fortress, but failed to get inside. The first time a couple of years ago, the fortress was closed due to emergency condition. And last September we with her grandson after a day trip to Lomonosovskomu area late on 15 minutes-ticket office worked up to 17-30. Outside the fortress makes grandiose impression!

  • The fortress is preserved thanks to the remoteness from large settlements and rapid loss of military value, belonged to the Novgorod then the Swedes, then was conquered by Peter, forgot about her and in fact her nobody Potoi deplete. Around the wonderful forests, along the road mozhnonedorogo to buy mushrooms and berries. The route from Peter, the climate is quite different. In fine weather, with towers say you can see the Baltic Sea, I saw. Krposti Dungeon currently closed, but they are. With souvenirs and food are pretty poorly, but around the forest, better stock up a basket with sandwiches. ... For lovers of religion within the Church and another effect

  • Three or four years ago it was possible to enjoy views toward the Bay-actually, this is the only thing which can enter the fortress. Now all closed down fences to get nowhere, nothing but decaying walls do not show. Wooden gates track did not put benches in the fortress of doing absolutely nothing, nothing at all. Would be better if this tree is allowed for the construction of one or two viewing platforms, even by raising the entrance fee. In short, the scoop in its purest form. Another three years you can not ride there, wait for changes for the better. There is a plus: appears to the left of the entrance a large shield with objects for visit-applaud, it was interesting to identify a place on next time. Share free ideas: 1. Erect viewing platforms towards the Gulf of Mexico. 2. Put the information boards that tell the history of the fortress, with details about the assault, demolition of walls, tombs in the territory, etc. Now the shield there, but dry like a recipe from the hospital, no interest. 3. Put benches! Sit nowhere except in the machine and quickly leave in horror and disappointment.

  • A very atmospheric place. Here, the imagination draws a picture of the distant past. The history of this place is very rich. The fortress has not restored that lends even more emotions. It is exactly those walls that stand for centuries, and these rocks and trees, "seen" history. From the South-Western side of the fortress-breakage. Earlier, say there was a navigable river, linking with the Bay. Ships from the sea came right to the walls of the fortress.

  • Fortress in terrible condition, no reconstruction is not involved. Only delayed the all metal grid that stones raining down. In some places are worth any wacky metal fences. All in a very upadnicheskom condition and collapses. The fortress itself would be very beautiful if local authorities finally started it.

  • The first time was here in the eighties, on the boards through a ravine crossed with dad. Since then, not much has changed, but began the fight for security. Sorry do not recover, but interesting touch to the 13th century.
