  • The legend about how Peter decided to found on the island of Kotlin Island fortress known to many and there is no sense to retell the story from the Guide. But if you deviate from the natoptannoj trails on which year after year lead visitors to the city guides, you can see a lot of interesting things. Namely, the method places the folded wall of polygonal masonry, while the remaining sections of the brick. You can ask themselves what does shaft directly behind the wall, if the loopholes in the wall below the level of the upper edge of the shaft. You can ask yourself how many bricks went into these massive arched constructions, and what is the Foundation of this building that it stands on the shore of the Marsh allegedly for several hundred years. Reliability of the wall is such that on some of its sites on it built houses and they are now and they are living people. The level of construction is what shocks me. You can wander through abandoned and nearly overgrown alleys of the summer garden and feel like being his foliage rustles the trees, and then in the security hole oak was planted by Admiral Makarov, see beautiful Marine Cathedral. You can walk on the bottom of the ravine dug in ancient times and understand that you are on the five floors deep and dry. And this island city. It is possible, albeit only for a day, to become a part of this world. The lack of decent hotels will prevent you to enjoy the charm of the city evening eye, but you believe that he is not less beautiful.

  • I have been in this Council for the first time in 1985m year. Then there was a Maritime Museum. In recent years the Cathedral was restored completely. Of course, the feeling of "was" not the most pleasant for the lover of antiquity-but outwardly repair was done very efficiently. A very impressive building! And be sure to go inside-there can be photographed and available free of charge at the entrance to the skirt and scarf (for women)
