  • Historical pomjatnik. A place where the bravery of soldiers defending admires Leningrad. A place where prisoners were kept reformers of our State. The place where the rightful heir to the throne was assassinated by Russian State-John Antonovich. Small stone Chamber, narrow Windows-the embrasures. Ancient history fortress Nut-from Vikings to our times. We need to see necessarily

  • Incredible atmospheric place with important historical value. Very impressed with stronghold, survived not one war and at one time became an important element in turning the great patriotic events. Getting to it is a fascinating short journey. By bus from the bus station of St. Petersburg-go-with sufficient regularity to the small town of Shlisselburg. Drove, unfortunately, after lunch and stroll on it already ran out of time, although very much like. Went in a small grocery store, like it is called Dixie, saleswomen-stunning, smiling and helpful. ... How to pass on the embankment to cross up to the fortress. A small Marina, cruising paromchiki, crossing the child till 7 years-free of charge. We are just on the last flight, and time, alas, was disastrously little to a lot of naguljat'sja on the island. Managed to look very beautiful monument inside the fortress, go to the premises serving a prison for political prisoners, a little stroll on the top floor of the fortress. Buildings were restored, everything what state left after the war-and already available for our generation. Really impressive history, be sure to read before you visit the fortress to fully feel the Majesty and significance of this island-nut. Get there early, the last ferry from the fortress at 18.00, utepljajtes', wind shear to the Ladoga Lake not caught you off guard. Remained under great favorable impression to leave is not like this is the place where the pleasure of going still. Yes-the son also liked) something Lovers only this "Oh, how wonderful, what a wonderful architectural solutions!" advise not going and everyone entrain, fortifications, impregnated with the spirit of the time-you should definitely select day for this visit this incredible place.

  • Not very equipped, but very promising historical place. His car came easily. And not very comfortable. But the place is very beautiful and outstanding historical value. Be sure to visit!

  • August 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.

  • Reach 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.

  • 2016. 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.

  • Shlisselburg-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!
