You can see this from the inside. Its quite beautiful. It was built by Peter The Great. A bit of a drive away from other tourist sites.

City and fortress build by Peter the Great. The cathedral is really beautiful and a must visit. 1 houre away from Saint-Petersburg. A day is enough for explorer the island.

I had read about the old fortresses at Kronstadt and the significant role it played in the Russian history, the revolution and the subsequent civil war. I did not know about the dam until we saw it. St. Petersburg is prone to severe flooding from...More

Oozing history where the Russian fleet docked and replenished during an age of naval battles and races for superiority. Remnants of hardware dot the beautiful park like setting such as buried inverted cannons in the Great War with Sweden.
