Excursions and tours on hydrofoils to Oreshek Fortress from St. Petersburg
Hydrofoils to the Shlisselburg Fortress from the SPb Center
The grandson of Alexander Nevsky found the right place to protect the Russian lands from the enemies coming from Ladoga. The famous Oreshek was erected on the island and it blocked the entrance to the Neva.
The fortress has seen a lot of battles since 1326. Several times it changed its “citizenship", was a place of exile and political prison. On an inaccessible island, behind the thick walls, the rulers hid the undesirable and freethinking people. The first prisoners of the fortress were the sister and wife of Emperor, Peter the Great.
During the Second World War, the Red Army kept the defense for almost 500 days and did not allow the German troops to force the Neva. Now here is a museum.
