A survivor of two World Wars, Brest Fortress with its area of 4 sq. km is a major tourist attraction in Brest and one of the national landmarks. It was built in 1842 on the site of the demolished city of Brest-Litovsk to solidify the western borders of the Russian Empire. Work on strengthening the Fortress continued until late 1914 and resulted in the creation of a system of powerful defensive fortifications (forts) around it. The Fortress suffered major devastation during World War II and after it. In commemoration of the feat of the Fortress’ defenders, Brest Hero Fortress Memorial Complex was opened in 1971.
