Favorite thing: Together with fire power of the castle which had 141 guns, 8 mortars and 2 howitzers in the XVIII century, the defensive complex represented the great strength. A successful site of a fortress on island, powerful defensive works, effective system of fire fight made the Vyborg castle unapproachable. A number of historic facts testifies this fact.
During the Northern war Peter I gave great value to Vyborg - to the city and a fortress as to the important advanced post on approaches to the new capital of Russia.
