  • Built in the late fifteenth century stone fortress is one of the oldest in the North of Russia. In Staraya Ladoga, the first capital of Russia many attractions-temples, monasteries, but the main fortress of Ladoga perhaps on the Bank of the Volkhov River. The fortress has now is an interesting historical Museum regularly hosts a variety of excursions, close to souvenir shops and cafes. Opposite the fortress in 2012. monument to Rurik it and Veshhemu Oleg, the founders of the RUS '.

  • The fortress is located in the Leningrad region, just over 100 km from St. Petersburg. Worth to visit and walk around the area. Better with a guide, a lot of interesting things you can hear. I took the tour, which included visits to other and more interesting from the point of view of the history and architecture of facilities in Staraya Ladoga (monasteries, Church, Prophetic Oleg mound), as well as a visit to the new Ladoga, which produced an extremely depressing impression. Recommend bring sandwiches and a thermos with tea or coffee, because next to the fortress only 3 cafes, service is slow, and not the fact that it will place on weekends during high season tourists.

  • Visiting the fortress we pleased. Although "new" spirit of the age, trying to recreate. An amazing 16-ти multifaceted roof of one of the towers is very impressive. The other Tower has a large number of exhibits and the layout of the fortress. The stone church on the yard is closed most of the year. There 12-century frescoes and for their preservation, the temple opens only in summer and only in good weather. Stave church-new print without altar and icons, but with shards of old frescoes. Services are held in the summer once or twice a year.

  • Since childhood, knew about this place, but had a chance to visit only recently. Entry 50 rubles, but touch the history of the country is worth it. Beautiful, renovated, well groomed. For people on the bus from Volhovstroja 18 minutes (with stops from the train station). Apple trees everywhere, the river Volkhov, nature, freshness! Really liked it!
