A fortress of Coporie in the Leningrad Region. It was built in 1240 by Germans. A year later it was Alexander Nevsky who occupied the fortress and drove the Germans away.

730 years of existence.
Till the very 20th century the fortress has been abandoned. In 1979-83 the fortress has been improved and a booth with the ticket seller has been put on its territory. Since that time it has been a museum.
