Not far from St. Petersburg there is a wonderful ancient Russian fortress Koporye. It is a pity that there was little left of the fortification of Novgorod.

You can get to the Koporsky Fortress either by bus or by car on the E-20 road to the village of Begunitsy and turn right, further to the settlement of Koporye. From the Ring Road go only 90 km, a little more than an hour. There is another option to get to Koporye by train. Admission by ticket (50 rubles) from 10:00 to 18:00.
