A frontier town of WWI
This time we will get to know the fortress town – the Przemysl Fortress – a mighty group of defence systems, one of 200 large permanent fortifications which existed in Europe in 1914 and the third largest after Antwerp and Verdun.
Why did such a huge and ingeniously realised logistical project arise in Przemysl?
What was this fortification really meant to defend, and what role did the Przemysl Gate fulfil in Europe?
Our visit will start from the Lower Sanok Gate and move on to the Przemysl Fort Museum, followed by the Garrison Hospital on Slowackiego Street – where you will be shown the workplace of Prof. Rudolf Stefan Weigle – nominated 9 times for a Nobel Prize.
