Vyborg Castle is a symbol of Vyborg, which has been towering over the city since the 13th century. It is called a monument of fortification architecture. The castle was often rebuilt and changed functions. Today there is a museum here, music festivals and knightly tournaments are held on the territory. Alexander Palace in Pushkin

This castle was invented by the Swedish crusaders during the campaign against Novgorod. Six hundred years ago, not only military men, but also merchants, artisans and clergy lived on the castle island.

During the Northern War, the castle was badly damaged by Russian cannons. Peter the Great ordered the reconstruction of the walls to serve the Russian border. In the 19th century, the castle kept the treasures of the Hermitage. Today we can see what the building looked like at the end of the 19th century.

The local history museum was opened in the castle in the 60s of the last century. Archaeologists do not stop researching, they hope to find new artifacts for exhibitions. In the museum you can learn about the history of the castle, how Vyborg has changed over the course of 6 centuries, what significance it had for the border, and also learn about the nature of the Karelian Isthmus.
