Fort A was built in 1911-1915, north of Brest Fortress, and is one of the few fortresses of its kind left. Let’s go check it.
The fort is overgrown with greenery and it seems like it’s situated in the jungle.
An unfinished caponnier.
In one of the slabs there’s a huge crack.
As water keeps running along the cracks, stalactites appear.
Different casemates and forts are scattered around.
From the outside you can see an unremarkable crack…
This is an entrance into the lookout post.
One of the ventillation mushrooms.
This is a main part of the fort with a welded door.
The main entrance is open, because its door has been stolen.
Nice trick with light, isn’t it?
The main passage.
When a military unit was located in this fort, the postern was redesigned into a bathroom.
This staricase was made in the beginning of the 20th century and connected the main gallery and the postern.
Do you see how high the ceiling of the postern is?
Some part of the postern is unfinished.
The main gallery is divided by several hermetic doors.
It leads down to the abandoned part.
You wonder, why it is red? They just didn’t want to hit themselves against this thing in the dark.
This is what has left from a bomb shelter.
There are many compartments with manholes.
A diesel engine.
