A road trip along the Baltic Sea coast in north-west Leningrad Oblast is an eye-opening journey through history. Many monumental events that will forever be written in Russia’s history took place here.

He starts things off with a story about the ancient Koporje Fortress, whose history is strongly linked with prince and military commander Alexander Nevsky. What people inhabited these territories centuries ago? What secrets are the destroyed docks on the Finnish Gulf hiding? Where did the hull of the famous Aurora Cruiser really sink and what is the new Ust-Luga sea port known for? Find out the answers and more in RTG TV’s new programme.
