Brest region, city of Brest, ul. Geroev oborony, 60
The Brest Fortress became widely known in connection with the tragic events of June 1941; the heroic defense of the fortress is the main line in the history of this fortification complex. But at the beginning of the war, the fortress already had a century-old history.
Today the memorial complex "Brest Hero-Fortress" is one of the most recognizable and visited tourist sites in the Republic of Belarus. Here, in a single complex, places of battles, ruins, preserved structures of the fortress and museum expositions are combined. Built as a military facility, having survived the fires of two world wars, today the Brest Fortress remains a place of memory and peace.
