Vladivostok Fortress: a miracle of military art

In 1889 Vladivostok was officially declared a fortress, and at the same time the city began a grandiose construction of defensive structures which took more than a decade. The cost of the building of the entire complex was fantastic for those times - 98 billion gold rubles! For 15 years Russian military engineers and soldiers have created hundreds of kilometers of new roads, including a ropeway, forts, an airfield and many unique underground structures with a thickness of walls up to four meters!

According to the order of one of the construction leaders Colonel A.P. Shoshin, for the construction of the Vladivostok fortress "without exception, all structures other than the strength and stability must be properly performed and the outside." Beautiful and powerful structures took into account the experience of defense of the seaside fortresses, they were called a miracle of engineering thought. Now it is available to all the comers to wander through the scattered in the city and its surroundings staff rooms and forts, dungeons and casemates. And the Vladivostok Fortress museum on Bezymiannaya Sopka introduces an extensive collection of military equipment and tells about the military history of the city. In the fortress one can see the rise of the kaiser-flag, which is permitted only on the first rank forts and ships. A midday shot sounds during the change of guard of honor every day. This tradition has survived only in three Russian sea citadels: St. Petersburg, Kaliningrad and Vladivostok.
