Kronstadt, St. Petersburg

4.7
#3 of 19 in Nature in St. Petersburg
Explore the base of the Russian admiralty on your visit to Kronstadt, the city's primary seaport and once the site of a major rebellion. In March of 1921, the soldiers, navy officers, and sailors--along with their civilian supporters--led a rebellion against the local Bolshevik government, demanding freedom of speech and the end of deportation camps. Founded by Peter the Great, the military town was an important training center for the Soviet Navy during World War II, and features many fortresses that protected St. Petersburg and its vital shipping routes, although it was bombed several times by German forces during World War II. This municipality was of such importance to the Russian military that it was closed to the public until 1996. Visit the cathedral and palace, take a boat tour around the harbor fortresses, and visit the museum detailing the history of the area. The town is easily accessible via boat or the local bus service.

  • Unusual city, went there with a friend. Got on the bus (about 1:00). Walked around the city independently, each served there, so I heard a lot of different stories. Memorable korjushke monument, a large tree with the ear where you whisper desire;) of course, the new Cathedral-great from the outside, the inside was unable to get into. Feet in the evening is not felt. Recommend to visit!
