  • So long as to be in the fortress and pay un.billet so take the handset to 600 rub and see this prison where the revolutionaries such as Trotsky and Gorki and then opponents of the regime were imprisoned Bolshevik after 1917. View cells... even if they look the same. They are individualized by panels that give the names of the occupants... Interesting all the same

  • Interesting site, especially for those who like to read about other people's tragic fate (and read the Museum need quite a lot, so entertaining). Wall decals contain many cognitive information on jail inmates and about that time. In some cameras Audio read from the diaries of prisoners. Many complained of other visitors that all-too-the same, but I don't know what they are expecting to see in an ordinary prison.

  • Interesting place apart from cathedral. Describe the life in Prison cell during uprising of revolution. Lenin's elder brother was sentenced along with other revolutionary. Depiction of cells Walls with nice cancellation, but prisoner found way to communicate. It's interesting and will take 30 mins to see.
  • It was an important prison for political prisoners. It's interesting to see how the nature of the prisoners evolved according to the historic events that were happening at that time in Russia. It held from terrorists that attempted against the life of the emperor to royal family members when the revolution finally succeeded. The museum allows you to enter almost every cell and next to the cell door you can read the profile of notorious prisoners.
  • This prison could be meaningful to Russians; however, in terms of foreigner, this is just a prison.
  • Nice but nothing special
  • The bastion displayed how enemies or prisoners lived in a grim prision for in the past. Some jailed in the dark, damp solitary celss. Quite awful!
