Travel Itinerary and Road Trip Route

Day 1: History forever and ever.

Did you know that modern Kaliningrad used to be a defensive fortress surrounded by towers, defense forts and forts? The task of the fortification ring was not to miss the enemy from any side. In total, 15 forts were built, 12 of which were large and 3 auxiliary. They are also called the "Night Perina of Koenigsberg". Today you will learn what they look like and what secrets they keep in themselves.

Kaliningrad

Форт № 11 «Дёнхофф»

This building was erected in the 70-80s of the XIX century. The fort was named after the governor of Memel (now Klaipeda) Friedrich von Denhoff. At the end of the war the fort was surrendered without a fight, so it is well preserved. A German gate and a lifting mechanism are still in operation here. Immediately after the victory the fort was occupied by the military, and in 2015 it was transferred to private hands. A museum for visitors is open on the grounds.
