  • Neglected but very interesting fortress - view is majestic and inaccessible, but in reality this fortress changed hands several times - between Sweden and Russian Novgorod. It's a pitty, that it stand...  more »
  • Only 90 km from the city and you have a stunning view of the historical fortress of Koporskuju. Entrance fee, but it is a trifle-just 50 rubles for an adult. The surroundings of the fortress is also very impressive, at the bottom flows the small picturesque river. On the territory of the fortress is the chapel. A large part of the inner fortress separated by a fence, for security purposes, but, under his own responsibility, it is possible for them to come and take some beautiful pictures. Highly recommend to visit. The only negative-the road from town to the fortress, especially the Gostilickoe highway. But it's worth it!

  • Great option for a small one-day car trip with family/friends. Very interesting medieval fortress, impressive in its size. Entrance cost us just 50 rubles. Everything can be shearing, even dangerous areas somehow aren't protected. Therefore, parents should be careful with children. Also in this place you can only get there by car. Public transport is very problematic. Recommend!

  • 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.
