  • At the moment, most companies offer a view of the Fort from the water and only one carries people directly in the Fort on the tour. The outside looks more impressive than inside.

  • 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.

  • Old Russian fort in sad shape but a great photo opportunity. Illegal to go ashore.
  • Since the founding of St. Petersburg in 1703 year waterways in the Gulf had strategic importance for Russia. Peter began construction of forts in the Gulf and the first military facility on the island of Kotlin Island-Fort Kronshlot in year 1704. Over the next two centuries continued to strengthen this area. Louis Barthelemy Karbone (aka Lev Lvovich Karbone) in 1820-IES has developed a project of two marine forts to strengthen the defense of the southern fairway. On the form of forts were supposed to represent the upper part lying horizontally, allowing anywhere in the wall would have a dual surface curvature, which should lead to ricochet round cores. After the death of Karbone, in 1836, the year the Special Committee headed by engineer-Lieutenant-General Hull communications Jean-Antoine-Maurice Destremom reviewed the plan for the new fortress.

  • Double Fort Bayard. Interesting place with a tumultuous past. You can only get on the water with a guided tour. In fairly good condition. Interesting for children and adults. The second name "Plague" is a terrific story.

  • Unusual Fort. Would like to view it from the inside. As far as I know, right now it's difficult.

Where to stay in St. Petersburg

For luxury hotels with a price tag to match, you can't beat the city's historical heart--Palace Square--and Nevsky Prospekt, the main avenue that connects the square to the Neva River. The area around St. Isaac's Cathedral, at the west end of Nevsky Prospekt, also offers a great selection of luxury and mid-range options. If you want to see the other side of the city, consider staying on Vasilyevsky Island, at the mouth of the river. Increased competition means that St. Petersburg now offers a wide range of inexpensive but funky hostels scattered throughout the city.
