Smolensk Fortress


This old building will make a big impression on you. The fortress keeps the atmosphere of the old and antique residential areas of Russia;. However, less than half of the four-kilometer wall survived. It still decorates the city being its primary landmark. Many towers of the fortress walls were ruined, and one of the most famous remaining towers is Veselukha. If you ascend Veselukha, you will enjoy excellent views of the city and its suburbs. It also attracts mystery and horror lovers: according to the legend, evil spirits and ghosts inhabit the tower and come out at night. The tower served as a headquarters for false-coiners in the past, so they had to create a scary atmosphere around the place to frighten away bystanders.
