If you are in the area and a history enthusiast, this is one of the "must-see sights". It is both an impressive part of a fortification system and a Place that played a key part in one of the many genocides in the previous century. Concrete workers will also enjoy this place, since the giant soviet monument over the victims... More

We skipped the guided tour in the first area because we had 2 younger kids and wanted to shorten the entire tour. This was fine. The rest of the tour was very interesting. When driving up, you have no idea of the vast area the Ninth Fort covers. There are areas for the political prisoners as well as Jews during... More

Though out of town it can easily be reached by bus which is very cheap. When you get off the bus there are no signs or anything to say where to go! Cross over the road and head back towards the busy dual carriageways. Then follow a narrow path around the side of the last house and continue up a... More

Ninth forth is of course really good example of defense fortification of it’s time, but it’s also impressive monument of WW2 and all of it’s horror. You feel the history, you feel the sorrow. Read all the signs, that way you understand what has happened there, and also remember walk around whole fortification and look all the details of early... More

Moving monument and museum. Gives great insight into what our relatives must have gone through. They have done a wonderful job of collecting artifacts and recreating events. The monument is very special, the closer you get

With a very reasonably priced fee, the museum here was well worth it. We had an English audio guide, which was very informative and all the exhibitions were well presented. The fort itself was also well presented and easy to navigate. Of course all the information though is quite confronting and disturbing, so be prepared to come out feeling a... More
