  • Baturyn fortress-glorious place of Ukrainian Hetman was laid down by the Polish gentry Pjasochinskim on ancient Russian settlement. 83 just Lasted a year and in the year 1708 by order of Peter I was barbarically destroyed by Russian troops under the leadership of a. Menshikov. 20 thousand troops against 7 thousand kozakov. Forces were not equal, the fortress was strengthened and can resist for a long time, but fell as a result of treachery on the territory of the fortress but also civilians-7 thousand people, mostly women, children and the elderly. Barbarians have donated ... cannot be without tears listening to a guide on their atrocities. Flowing Sejm became Crimson from blood of Ukrainians 3 century passed from the day of terrible tragedy and ashes-revived. reconstruction of total the fortress complex very carefully erected a Memorial Cross in honour of the victims. In Hetman's House we saw all of the Hetmans (beautiful wax figures.) from the top of the fortress overlooks the Seim. I can't believe that it was once a large and navigable. Visit the fortress must be. We had a good young Guide, who professionally conducted tour and answered all the concerns of us questions.

  • Yes, it is a reconstruction, but done qualitatively. Tour is very informative. If you're in those places, then recommend a guide by Vitaly.
