Reduit of the Kupferteich Bastion

  Ul. Litovskiy Val 27     more than a year ago
A Reduit is the last defensive stronghold within a larger fortress and this one belonged to the now non-existent Kupferteich Bastion, which had been built in the mid-19th century as a support position for the nearby Grolman Bastion (located 1km to the northwest – just up the main road) but was deconstructed at the beginning of the 20th century.

In the aftermath of WW2, the Reduit was utilised by the Soviet authorities as a police station and then later as a saw mill and a hostel. In 1995 it became the first ‘beer restaurant’ in the city, brewing a range of eponymous beers on site.
