Kyiv Fortress

Kyiv, Ukraine
4.5 / 19
The complex of fortifications on the right bank of the Dnieper River. It includes several earthen fortifications, citadels, outbuildings and administrative buildings. The history of the fortress is rooted in the 5th century. Then on Starokievskaya hill there was a fortified ancient settlement. After the destructive campaign of Batu Khan to Russia in the 13th century, the buildings fell into decay. The Kiev fortress again regained its military significance during the Russian-Swedish war of 1700-1721.
