Kronshtadt (also spelled Kronštadt) is one of the most unusual suburbs of St. Petersburg. It’s a fortified town and a naval port, which lies on Kotlin Island near the head of the Gulf of Finland. Kronshtadt was founded by Peter the Great to protect the approaches to St. Petersburg during the Great Northern War. The place is often called the sea shield of the city. As the strongest naval fortress in the north-west of Russia and the base of the Russian Baltic Fleet, this beautiful city-museum had remained a “closed town” for many years. It was only in 1996 when this place became open to the public.

The tour encompasses such attractions as the famous Kronstadt sea-gauge, which is the zero level of the Baltic system of depths and heights (all depths and altitudes are measured from its level), historical fortifications, dockage facilities, including the eminent drydock of Peter the Great, forts, harbours, cast-iron pavement, a suspension bridge, the inimitable Naval Cathedral of St. Nicolas, spectacular embankments, and many other attractions. You will learn about the history of the construction of the unique St. Petersburg Flood Prevention Facility Complex (the St. Petersburg Dam), and many interesting facts about the legendary Kronshtadt which has played a crucial role in the fate of Russia. The centre of the city and its fortifications have been designated as UNESCO World Heritage Site.
