  • 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.

  • Went with bus excursion in kronstadt, then roll forward PE in plague Fort. A mysterious place, and the weather turned bad, and guide interesting horror recounted. From the roof of the Fort are visible a huge ocean liners and other forts. Learned a lot about the defense of the city. Fort contrast with gilded palaces and very supplemented impressions about Peter. Recommend! You will not regret!
