  • By car from Petersburg to Shlisselburg 30 min. If a bus-No. 575 from Metro Dybenko. Bus tickets worth 75 rub. /1 pers. Further from the final bus to ferry steamer 200 meters. Steamboat ticket 250 rub. /1 pers. immediately available to both sides-don't lose your ticket on the island. Go parohodiki often, travel time 10-15 minutes. Sailed-castle entrance 200 rub. /1 pers. (seniors cheaper, children free), is included in the excursion. Time to explore-about 3-4 hours (including 1.5 hour tour). Thought to resemble themselves, no tours, but thank God went to say that plunged into the story-say nothing ... We are drowning in it. Girl-guide in the green jacket just professional and enthusiast of his case. So much interesting information, details ... Novgorod, the Swedes, Piotr Galitzine 1 and his wife, a prison for the Decembrists and people, the execution of Ulyanov Alexander not only defence in World War II. Compare with excursions to other objects is the brightest. The Guide led the facts and told so that everything was a breeze. Answered all my questions-thanks her for professionalism. Then, after the tour can walk by yourself or join the next tours). For those wishing to walk the perimeter of the top-available ' Ladozhsky promenade "for 100 rub./1pers. It is also possible to free climb up through the tower and pass along the walls of the fortress. view and photograph the mechanism to raise the gate and not only ...) Free WC (in trust)). There is a souvenir shop and a café. On the beach with views of the Lake Ladoga, there are places where you can sit down and have a bite, if something took with them.

  • Vibrantly treat memoirs about World War II. Here is the memory! Plus, the fortress itself was founded in the 14 century. Memory in 6 centuries.

  • Were Saturday-tail on the ferry about 100 people. Shliselburga ferry leaves every 10 minutes and the wait was about half an hour. Ferry tickets cost 900 rubles into the Museum for free on our family (3 children). Weather allowed plenty of wander around the fortress and its wall on the "Ladoga promenade". Photos turn out awesome!

  • Super fortress worthing a visit. Nice reconstruction and some explanations in English. Better a guide if you don't know Russian for further knowledge. A little preparation for a small picnic at the lake shore of the island is to recommend. Easy to spend 2-4 hours. For kids would be a fantastic visit. 250rub the ferry (every 30minutes) and the entrance 200rub. The fortress was the key to reach S.Peterburg and it was also used as prison for Dekabrists (s.XIX) and anarchist (end of XIX and beginning of XX). Then it was a bastion to leave open the access of Leningrad to the rest of Russia against the nazi troops storming the city.
  • good place
  • Modern Mavericks, Museum, sightseeing, guide, for schoolchildren was all in the form of games, where the guide in the medieval vestments Archer talks about the fortress and quests, puzzles for them, a lot of things and that you can visit, touch. For adults the other side. Very expensive for such a place. 250 rub. Ferry to one + 200 rub. ticket in Castle. Very much it was not pleasant, that paying an entrance fee, it turns out, if you want to climb the tower inside the fortress, you will have to pay extra. Comparing with other fortresses, for example with Suomenlinna in Finland, where the magnitude of times more ticket only costs 5 euros and no surcharges.

  • It is a great place! There you can admire the historical fortress and go fishing. Inside is also very interesting! Just a pity that there's no Cafe to grab a bite to eat. And so everything is Super! Everyone who was not, advise.

  • Agree with those who wrote that visit this castle one time worth it. Moreover, it is necessary to attend a tour, because the second time travel is no longer interesting. On the other hand, especially to watch there. This is understandable-a lot has been destroyed during the war.
