Saint Petersburg

Копорская крепость

The first point of our journey will be a monument of medieval defensive architecture. The fortress was mentioned in chronicles since 1240. The fortress was rebuilt several times. At the present stage of restoration works were practically not carried out, which allowed preserving the authenticity of the fortress. The fortress includes defensive walls, gates, bridge, chapel and church.


The complex is a fabulous European town dedicated to H.H. Andersen. Here you will see the fountain with the Little Mermaid and the dolphins guarding it, meet the Tin Soldier, take a picture under the umbrella of Ole Lukoje. There are often various activities on site that you can participate in. Also here you can ride a bicycle, buy branded products (magnetics, T-shirts, cups, plates) in a souvenir shop.
