In 2017, the first part of the Konstantinovskaya Battery Museum and Exhibition Complex, renovated by the Russian Geographical Society, opened for visitors in Sevastopol.

Konstantinovsky battery was built in the XIX century to block the entrance to the Sevastopol Bay for enemy ships. It is located on the cape with the same name (Konstantinovsky Cape) in the northern part of the Sevastopol Bay. The fortress is one of the oldest preserved buildings of Sevastopol. It is one of the main symbols of the city; each stone of the fortress is imbued with the glorious history of Russian maritime traditions and exploits.

History of Konstantinovskaya Battery

The Russian Geographical Society has conducted a large-scale reconstruction of the citadel. The builders restored the battery according to the old drawings provided by the Central Archive of the Russian Navy in St. Petersburg.

Today, the fortress is a unique open-air museum: a historical exposition is open to the public in the battery’s casemates.
