  • 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 »

  • Amazing place, the majestic and picturesque. Be sure to listen to the tour, to feel the spirit of people at different times were within the walls of this fortress. Thanks to the reviews online had a clear idea about the cost of the visit and no complaints about this have not. Lucky with the weather, I recommend to take thermoses, sandwiches and blankets, to combine the cultural part and camping. Combination sandwiches better hot dogs on 200r.

  • The place is amazing. Infused with history. In general it seems to me that everyone born it just must visit. Can't agree with comments like "very expensive". And now that cheap?! Pay separately for ferry boat (250 roubles for adults and 150 for children, it is already in both sides), the ship goes from the railway calendar Located in the village of behalf of Morozov each day from 10 am. Then pay for the castle entrance and guided tour (200 and 100 rubles per adult and child respectively). Guides-Super! Be sure to listen to the tour! A great trip for the whole day. Weather somewhat cloudy was, but few tourists in the fortress and very atmospheric.

  • In General, an interesting place, with its own history, and riddles. What faces Casemates with portraits of prisoners, previously only intellectuals received the honor of being in detention. Seriously that place worth to visit. The only thing better course in the summer, Ladoga pretty cool place. And prepare the money the two sides steam 250 r. 200R Museum entrance for students discount + climb the Ladozhsky promenade has 100

  • Be careful: you can only sail on the Marina and the beach, where sailed. And so everything is wonderful ... But one can already be in prisons and remake the tablets with ardent Soviet contemporary neutrals. Young people, I think, already not very clear about the struggle against tsarism.
