Brest Fortress is to use 3D light-reconstruction to recreate the long-lost silhouette, as it was in the Middle Ages


The project is the work of public initiative group ‘Brest-2019’: created for the 1,000th anniversary of the city. Its manager, Marina Zavrazhnaya, tells us that the citadel was constructed from 1830 onwards, but that people lived there beforehand. She explains, “We’d like to show visitors the medieval city which was located here: monasteries, various churches (including Catholic) and a synagogue. It’s difficult to create mock-ups, but a light festival is quite a European tradition these days.”

The Deputy Director for Scientific Work at Brest Hero-Fortress Memorial, Larisa Bibik, notes the importance of the site not for ‘entertainment’ but as a source of patriotic education. It is the burial place of more than 1,000 heroes who gave their lives. She emphasises, “We aren’t against the use of new technologies or innovative ideas, but these shouldn’t destroy the idea of the fortress as a centre for honouring the memory of its defenders.”
