  • It is wise to first read about the fortress of Koporye, and then go to touch the historic heritage and horizon wider, and visual perception is in absolute dependence on perception of complex (really, annoyed by the general condition of the monument). However, this forces the Fort was, is and will be. The glory of Russian arms!)

  • Unfortunately, the condition of the fortress is not very good, but the atmosphere allows you to immerse yourself in yore.

  • The Koporye, you can see the towers and walls, it is now partially demolished, but it is possible to descend into some basements. Not all towers available for visiting. Barely survived Tower of the fortress naugol'naja, and passage in it is prohibited. You can walk around the territory and can be composed of tourist group. Entrance for adults only 100 rubles. We had a bit of time, and we decided to walk themselves. Be sure to take your camera: you can climb on the wall (only very carefully), and at the bottom of a huge ravine, the view is simply stunning, nature of extraordinary beauty and such height!

  • 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.
