Few people know that the Kyiv-Pechersk Fortress was once considered the largest in Europe. The city was reliably protected by a complex system of fortifications: earthen ramparts, defensive towers, forts, and caponiers. Construction on Pechersk was started by the Cossacks of Hetman Samoilovych in the 17th century. Interestingly, today most of these objects have been preserved and continue to coexist unnoticed alongside ordinary houses. The boundaries of the Kyiv fortress are much wider than the museum of the same name and the Kosyi Kaponir. Together with you we will reveal the secrets of the largest fortress in Europe!
