  • One of the best-preserved forts in the Northwest. In my opinion, obligatory place to visit for anyone interested in our history. To travel better choose warm time and nice weather: on the Lake is quite cold and windy in any weather, rain, I believe, will be very happy. From Saint-Petersburg is the most convenient to the Metro bus Dybenko (detailed description of all the alternatives are on the site of the fortress). On the island you can get only by water, so if you travel independently you should take into consideration that the group when crossing will be a priority and there is a chance that you'll have to wait your turn (we couldn't move back about 15 minutes, took out group). It is best to attend either with excursion or independently after reviewing the history of the place. Perfect, though, and most expensive, individual Guide (groups that we've seen, were too large, it is difficult in this environment to enjoy the place and its history). Appeared on site kiosk with souvenirs and a café, so that when the greatest desire you can purchase something and have a meal (although I did not like the Cafe rather option if absolutely unbearable, or simply want to drink something warm). The eg ...

  • An hour from Petersburg, ezdv is the fabulous town of Shlisselburg. And rchdom on the island fortress oreshek. Miraculously walked with a friend. Proniknulis spirit of that era. The entrance to the fortress of inexpensive, only 200 rubles. Free tours every hour. But it must still get 250 roubles) ship on both sides. Pretty good too. From St. Petersburg 2 option how to get there. To be more precise, but the third 3 for mazahistov. 2:00 by bus from Fishing through all the villages and Kirovsk. If you want to visit not only in the fortress, but also a walk through Shlisselburgu, the best option-575 bus from m. Dybenko. 75 rubles. And apart from 35-40. With a bus stop 2 minutes to Marina. There is also an option. We took them on than regret. The train station is Located with the Finland railway station. Near Bay Petrokrepost. From there on the boat to the island Faithful. But in Shlisselburg hit would be problematic. From them. Morozova transport to Shlisselburg No. Only taxis for 500 p.

  • 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.
