This fort was built in 1913 and used for various types of occupation over the years, most of them horrific. It's a very dramatic building to visit and you can easily imagine the hardships suffered. The mass murder site is very sad and the monument...More

Just go there to walk in the spacious park area, to see the monument and the fort from the outside. Keep the words freedom and independence in mind when you are there.
