Kronshtadt has a lot in common with St. Petersburg: the Admiralty, the Summer Garden, the Gostiny Dvor, the Blue and Green bridges, and even its own cannon that gives a mid-day shot.

St. Nicholas Naval Cathedral

The main jewel of the Kronstadt
Kronstadt is famous not only for its forts, but also for its magnificent Orthodox churches. On the Yakornaya Square of the city, the attention of tourists is captured by St. Nicholas Cathedral. In clear weather, the domes of the cathedral, built in the Neo-Byzantine style, are visible even from St. Petersburg. This landmark of Kronstadt was constructed in honor of all sailors who laid down their heads in battles for the motherland. Since the restoration of the cathedral was finished, services again have been taking place here. Since 1974, a branch of the Naval Museum has been operating on the second floor of the cathedral. Its expositions tell about the history of the city of Kronstadt and the construction of the fortress. Here you can see old weapons, photographs and things that belonged to sailors.

The Fort Constantine

The Fort Konstantin is one of the forts that made up the Kronstadt defense system. The beginning of its history dates back to 1807. Then, in December, Emperor Alexander I signed a decree strengthening the fortress of Kronstadt in connection with a possible war with England. It should be noted that the history of the development of the Kronstadt fortress is closely connected with the history of diplomatic relations with European countries and, first of all, with the Foggy Albion. We invite you to an excursion to Kronstadt.
