In the 17th century, the Russians began the construction of an enormous series of fortifications that would grow into the elaborate Kiev Fortress complex that you can still find in the city today. The fortress is complete with walls, bastions, gun emplacements and barracks that were made to hold thousands of soldiers. It's one of the largest forts in Europe, and it's the perfect place for history buffs to explore!

The Kiev Fortress is a complex of Russian fortifications built during 17th and 19th centuries based on the already existing fortified monastery of Kiev Pechersk Lavra.

In the past, the fortress belonged to the extensive system of western Russian fortresses of the Russian Empire. The complex includes many separate fortifications in Pechersk, Podil, Old Kiev, and Zvirynets neighborhoods.

This attraction is located very close to the city center. If you wish to take the most out of your visit, do some reading beforehand. The grounds are very impressive, the history is interesting and the views of the city from the fortress are nothing less than breathtaking.

It's not always on a traveller's list to do but if you have time, the Kiev Fortress is a great place to visit and stroll around.
Entry to the grounds are free and a small fee is charged for the museum. Small rooms containing displays of old war uniforms, weapons - but the best thing is the view of Kiev city.
Worth the visit.
