  • The place has historic significance-the city of Yelisavetgrad began from this point, with the construction of this fortress. Commemorative plaque devoted to Suvorov and Kutuzov, opposite the fortress restaurant names, perished in the great patriotic war, often called the second world now. Without attention to the State of such places rapidly come into oblivion, unfortunately ...

  • A well-preserved large scale earthworks from 18th century
  • St. Elizabeth's Fortress is also the oldest and only remaining historical foundation of the 17th century in Europe, which was originally one of the strongholds of Russian protection in the region against attacks by Turkish Tatar neighbors, Polish and Crimean troops, and which gradually grew to the city of Elisabethgrad, then Kirovograd and now Kropivnitsky. The earthen ramparts of the fortress have a mysterious shape of a hexagon and occupy 57 hectares of the area located in the central part of the city on Ushakova 2A Street, now the city hospital No.1. Recommended place to visit.
