What awaits you
Milestones of the city in ancient monuments Modern Baltiysk is known as the westernmost city in Russia and the base of the Russian Navy. And once it was an important outpost of the eastern borders of Europe. We will talk about the events of bygone days at the Swedish fortress Pillau - the largest fortification in the Kaliningrad region - and on the embankment near the German pillboxes. In addition, you will see the oldest lighthouse in the region and find out why a monument to Empress Elizaveta Petrovna was erected in Baltiysk - one of the largest statues of a woman on a horse in the world
Original Baltiysk The city definitely has its own character and atmosphere - you will be convinced of this by exploring the harbors with impressive ships and measuredly floating snow-white swans, strolling the streets on the edge of the country and getting acquainted with the monuments of such different civilizational eras. And if you come from April to October, or when there are no storms, I will gladly introduce you to a unique nature reserve: the Baltic Spit. I will show you the old Neytief airfield, the Zapadny fort or the Old Lunette museum (optional).
The ferry crossing to the Baltic Spit is additionally paid - 70 rubles per person (optional visit).
The excursion starts at the railway station Svetlogorsk 2. You will find out the exact meeting point immediately after booking.
