Description: Kronstadt aka Cronstadt is a municipal town in Kronshtadtsky District of the federal city of St. Petersburg, Russia. It is located on Kotlin Island, 30 kilometers (19 mi) west of St. Petersburg proper near the head of the Gulf of Finland. The old three-decker forts which constituted the principal defences of the place defied the Anglo-French fleets during the Crimean War.
