It was a nice trip out of St. Petersburg to the lake ladoga, where the Newa starts. The visit of the Oreshek Fortress was nice, but not much more. Many things (but not everything) are described in rus... more »
Catch bus 575 from utlitsa dybenko.metro which is air-conditioned! Coach really with no stops in between taking about 40 minutes. It drops you off near the quay area where there are boats every 30 min... more »
The fortress is situated on an island and there is no way there other than by water (or maybe by air). We got there on a private boat of a man who takes people to and from the fortress. It costs 100 r... more »
Ольга АндрееваAugust 23, 2016 were to reach the fortress is only sitting at the local ship on the Quay in the town of Shlisselburg. Go about 7 minutes. Tickets cost 250 roubles, per adult, roundtrip. In the fortress itself bought another ticket for 200 rub. Already included guided tours on the hour. Highly recommend listening to the Guide. In addition to historical significance, offers beautiful views of the Lake Ladoga, and also seen way of life, which was able to withstand the Blockaded Leningrad.
Konstantin RomanovReach the fortress you can now and from the village of them. Morozova (and there by train from Finland railway station to Petrokrepost). M/v "Surefire" leaves every 40 minutes from the pier. Worth 250 rubles for "back and forth". But you will not be able to then swim away from the island in Shlisselburg! The ticket is only valid on one direction! Admission fee for adults is 200 roubles. Every half hour-hour from portal Tower sent the excursion. Very interesting excursion. Takes about an hour. The fortress has something to tell. Part of the walls and towers restored. In one place open passage on the wall. It's also interesting to wander through the Chambers in new and secret prison. You can bypass the fortress from the outside (approximately 20 minutes), with views of Lake Ladoga. Everything works till 19.00.
Ilya Druzhinin2016. the ticket (also on tour) was worth this season 200 rubles per adult, the remaining 100 rubles. Decent toilet closed Cafe (?) not seen: probably footbridge opposite the Church-and have it. In General, whom it scares-don't go. The rest-there's very interesting! Medieval fortress, which during the second world nor for the day was not seized by the Nazis to her visit. A large part of the exterior walls restored, but all in the courtyard as remained after the war. Here the war led the defense of Soviet soldiers, most of whom stayed here forever. Views of the ruined walls, a monument to heroism of the defenders of the fortress made in the Church of that relates directly to their feat-mesh. A history of the ancient fortress, and preserved the Royal prison and jail for critical and political prisoners here was awarded Swedish peace which lasted 300 years.
Алексей ФедотовShlisselburg-Key city-our Russian Nut! Castle hero, survived not one storm, politaja the blood of thousands of Russian soldiers, Fortress prison where hundreds of Russian citizens in the Tsar's regime disappeared in accurate print Alcatraz prison and fortress artillery, reached from Peter before it is difficult but it is worth it believe me look at the place where the Neva is born from Lake Ladoga and growing from the island's magnificent stone walls, ledges and need at least once in their life to see it!
Dimitriy LukinInteresting place. Be sure to visit. Very interesting solution to war monument. Beautiful views of the Ladoga shore. Something interesting place penalty.
