Description

Explore the ancient military Russian fortress.

Ancient fortress Old Ladoga is situated on the Volkhov river bank in 15 km from the largest lake of Europe – Ladoga Lake. Nowadays Old Ladoga is just a large village but long time ago it was one of the biggest towns of the North-West of Russia. Founded in the end of 9th century, the military fortress of Old Ladoga was defending the borders from Swedish troops. First fortress was built wooden, then it had been destroyed and rebuilt in stone in 15th century. Nowadays it is a historical museum. Now visitors can see two towers and a part of the wall. From the other three towers only the bases have been preserved. Inside the fortress the ancient Cathedral of Saint George is located. It is famous for its frescos of 12th century.
