Some foreword

"Northern Fortress" is not an academic resource dedicated to fortifications, artillery, historical studies of national antiquities, etc. There are no systematic photocatalogue of fortifications or local history guide.

Author will be glad to receive your helpful additions and friendly critique (but will develop this site in his own way).
