  • Отличное место для того, чтобы проникнуться историей города. Однако оно не для всех - сооружения сильно обветшали и территория вокруг них не облагорожена. С маленькими детьми туда не пойдёшь. А вот дети постарше сами ходят туда с удовольствием.
  • Постройка 1810 года. Архитектор - Оперман Карл Иванович.Строителем крепости был назначен генерал-майор Е.П. Фелькерзам. Основная оборонная линия крепости состояла из 8 бастионов. Крепость приравнивается к первому классу оборонительных сооружений Российской империи. Во вторую мировую здесь был контрационный лагерь военнопленных.
