Near St.-Petersburg there is a pleasant Old Russian fortress Koporie. It was built by German knights, destroyed by Alexander Nevsky, then it's built up. Repeatedly passed between us and Swedes, it was reconstructed.

The fortress is located on the brink of the Izhora height, views from walls the grasping! And fortification has well remained, for so old age (XIII century)

Sight not worn out, it is recommended to visiting. In the winter even it is more interesting — there are no tourists.
