Places to visit in Modlin

The city was part of the Russian Tsarist Empire until 1918. It was also the setting of the siege of Novogeorgievsk during World War I. Built in the period form 1806 to1812, Modlin Fortress is the largest 19th century fortress in Poland. From 1939, it served as the headquarters of the Modlin army and, in that sense, was at the centre of the battle of Modlin. On 18 January 1945, the fortress was taken by the Red Army. Fort Modlin today is partly in private, partly in military hands, and the buildings that do not fall into the above categories are deserted.
