  • 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!

  • You can go and see, but the infrastructure may be described in one word-"no". Prolonged grid emergency wall and all. The problem with themes that would just sit. We were a family with a small child wheelchair was not take on existing bridges.

  • Travel on mission visited the fortress of Koporye. Highly recommend to spend 30-40 minutes for a tour and 500 rubles for a personal guide. The whole story not only of Russia but also of the USSR and later Russia was reflected in these ruins. Of course, many of the details and the majority of impressions depends on the imagination of the visitor Guide and eloquence. The ruins are good for this background. And mysterious legends and blood curdling modern history! And-here-Is the name "koporskij" (it is also called "Sally", Ivan-tea, and foreigners-"Russian tea"). At the counter of the Museum it is sold for $14.95 per pack. Who will be passing (makes no sense to go specifically to the fortress a small excursion short, except for the stones and wood "love" exhibits no)-recommend refilling Tatneft-the only place in the County with WC, hot coffee and sausages.

  • 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.
