Fort Alexander is a naval fortress on an artificial island in the Gulf of Finland near Kronstadt. It was built between 1838 and 1845 and named after Emperor Alexander I. In 1899–1917, the fort housed a research laboratory on plague and other bacterial diseases.

I was not able to visit the Fortress that day because of another "government function" taking place at the fort — but all I saw were a couple of fisherman.
