I fine exposition of soviet war-time propoganda posters and other objects from the war period. Dark and dank in places but fascinating to wander through the fort. But waht your step! Uneven paths!!

It is definitely worth the drive, because even if you are not interested in the war-related history and artifacts, the place is still exciting, as it is somehow dark and mysterious. It is fun and creepy at the same time and you will have a fascinating 40 minute adventure walking, peeking and even crawling around the fallen fort.

it's out of the city but it worth the travel! give very clear picture of the battle size. with +25C outside it was almost freezing inside with vapour visible when breathing. a bit scary at some points but it only adds emotions!
