  • Were with her son-a teenager in St. Petersburg and bought an excursion to Kronshtad with a visit to the forts. Fort struck from the very beginning, when only swam up to this village, surrounded by water-it stands on an artificial island. Having passed through the huge old gates were in the courtyard. The tour held a man partial to the fate of the Fort, so the story it was emotional and interesting. We gladly polazili with his son inside the old stairs, resembled the corridors on which now walk out, imagining how things were before, watched from the roof of the surrounding panorama. Were very impressed. But it is a pity that today, the Fort fell into disrepair.

  • Were in St. Petersburg, bought a tour to kronstadt with a visit to Fort "Imperato Alexander I". To say that the tour enjoyed-nothing to say. Tour the company bought a Baltic tour "near Gostiny Dvor, constantly use their services, no complaints. Excursion in two stages: first, by minibus from the Kazan Cathedral, Kronstadt itself city tour, then on a boat-trip to the Fort the Fort holds a different Guide, we unreal lucky man with an amazing sense of humor. The Fort itself is impressive both inside and out, and when you listen to more parallel story "plague Fort", impressions remain indelible. Highly recommend a visit to this Fort, especially children and adolescents, although adults can hardly remain indifferent.
