  • 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.
