Museum 5th Fort of the Brest Fortress

The 5th fort was one of the defensive objects of the Brest-Litovsk fortress of the first line. It was built in 1878-1888, modernized in 1908-1911. It is located 4 km south-west of the Brest Fortress. It occupies an area of 0.79 km2.

The fort has a pentagonal shape. It was erected from a brick, surrounded by an earthen rampart, a moat filled with water. In the rear part, a barracks for the garrison was built, numbering eleven casemates, which was encroached on the floor by the floor. In the frontal part there was a front caponier (a fortification structure capable of conducting a fire in two opposite directions) for six guns, connected with the barracks of the central battle (an underground corridor linking various fort buildings with each other).
