On a comfortable bus we will drive to the town of Shlisselburg, located just 50 km from St. Petersburg on the shores of Ladoga Lake. And then we will take the ship and sail to the old fortress "Oreshek", which is located on a picturesque island in the immediate vicinity of the city of Shlisselburg.
Our guide will tell you about the history of the fortress, which holds many secrets, which historians are still trying to unravel. In addition, Oreshek played an important role during the blockade of Leningrad. We will examine historical monuments, such as: Gosudarev, Svetlichnaya and the Royal towers, the citadel, the buildings, the cathedral and other structures, which were later turned into a state political prison. You will learn about the fate of the most famous prisoners of the fortress.
