  • A special place in the fortress took its Tower is an observation, bombardment of the walls, the approaches thereto, the shelter gate protection troops, strongholds of Defense. But still — in the Smolensk fortress wall was never the same tower. As always, the shape and height of the towers was determined relief. In nine towers had the remainder gate. Home passing Tower — Frolivska (Dnieper), through which passed the exit to the capital of the Russian State. The second was the Molohovskaja Tower, Thai Pearl road in Kiev, red, Roslavl. Seven additional collar towers (Kryloshevskaja, Avraamievskaja, Lazarevskaya, Nikolskaya, Kopytenskaja, Pyatnitskaya and Resurrection), were made simpler, and did not have the same value as the first two. Thirteen deaf towers have a rectangular shape. With them alternated shestnadcatigrannye (seven towers) and round (nine).

  • The Thunder Tower is a small but very informative Museum, where you can learn all about the history of the Smolensk fortress, since its construction until the 19th century. In addition, after examination of expositions, climb up necessarily viewing platform, from which you can see the surrounding area (but small Windows, please be aware of this fact). In General, you can visit the Centre walking along, takes no more than 40 minutes.
