  • Pro fortress written literally on all sites, but never stated, that watch you will be very, very little. Nature and species — five and a plus. Museum of local lore is interesting, interesting excursions in the schematic. Very many places "under restoration", climb the Tower cannot. It will be interesting, especially with children climb on the shaft — offer a chic look. It is very important to note that, knowing the Museum does not accept, and ATM almost one and nag and NAG. By the way about it. If you are not on the car, the railway station will have to go and go. I advise you to build food in the food tent that will meet you when descending from the platform.

  • The fortress is mentioned in most collections like "the best sights of flax." although somehow it does not greatly impressed us. "Korela", which is now a museum complex, is only a small part of the fortress, which had important military significance in times gone by. A large part of the territory of the sanatorium occupies (no access). Museum-fortress includes only a few buildings and directly Fortress fence. In building a new Arsenal is a small Museum of local lore. Stands-a large amount of information, which is very convenient. In the exhibition hall of the old Arsenal showcased children's drawings. The round tower, unfortunately, was closed. Overall, we expected more. However, it is worth noting that nature here is really good. It was very nice to be like around the Castle and enjoy the Vuoksu. I would like to come here again, but in the summer. Perhaps the view goes another. P.s.: during our visit to the entrance was free. If you prefer, you can go to the Museum (entrance fee here, but 60 rub is more than adequate price).

  • Well strictly speaking Korela already not really perceived as a fortress: the river obmilila and is not already a natural barrier, and the walls look not so impressive) inside a beautiful Museum, which reflects the entire history of the region. In principle, 1.5 hours should be enough for a detailed inspection of the Museum and the Interior of the fortress.
