...There comes a time when the world gets quiet and the only thing left is your own heart. So you'd better learn the sound of it. Otherwise you'll never understand what it's saying.

Have you heard of the town of KRONSTADT (Кронштадт)?
Kronstadt is located on KOTLIN ISLAND in the Gulf of Finland, just 30 km from St.Petersburg.
Actually, the histories of these two neighbouring cities are inextricably intertwined with each other. Kronstadt was founded in 1704 - just a year after St.Petersburg started and with the aim to protect the latter from the sea.
Since its very start thus Kronstadt has been an important Russian seaport on the Baltic Sea and the base of the Russian Baltic Fleet.
