What to See and Do
In City
Brest Fortress is a 19th-century Russian fortress in Brest. It is one of the most important Soviet World War II war monuments commemorating the Soviet resistance against the German invasion on June 22, 1941 (Operation Barbarossa). Following the war, in 1965 the title Hero-Fortress was given to the Fortress to commemorate the heroic defence of the frontier stronghold during the first weeks of war. This war memorial is the largest tourist attraction of the city.
