Visit of the Kotlin Island, that was known as the most protected fortress in the world, with its magnificent Naval Cathedral and sea forts.
This island surrounded by artificial forts was once an inaccessible stronghold that guarded the entrance to St. Petersburg from the sea. Kronstadt is one of the symbols of the military feat and unshakeable spirit of the Russian fleet. Now it is accessible via highway with breathtaking views of the sea and nearby forts. Today, Kronstadt is a town that fascinates visitors with its old docks and warehouses, but above all, with the magnificent Naval Cathedral, recently renovated and absolutely astonishing inside and outside. The Cathedral contains the history of the Russian fleet from the day of its foundation up until 1917, its interior details, cupolas and doors are decorated with sea anchors and naval ornaments that are strikingly reminiscent of the uniform of the imperial fleet before the revolution. We will walk around the streets of Kronstadt, visit the cathedral and later take a small trip by boat to see the island and its forts, including the Fort Alexander I (or Plague Fort) from the sea (weather and season permitting).
