Founded by Emperor Peter the First in 1704, Kronstadt is one of Russia’s most famous marine fortresses. Nineteen forts and redoutes in the gulf surround the town. Kronstadt has been included in UNESCO World Heritage List. In the Soviet epoch, Kronstadt was a closed naval base. Nowadays, the town is open for all visitors.
