The Angel’s Fort – built based on the Mausoleum of Hadrian (nowadays, Castel Sant’ Angelo in Rome). A museum of military architecture. Constructed in 1854–1858, during the reign of Frederick William IV, King of Prussia, as an artillery and observation point of the Świnoujście Fortress (it consisted of four forts). Equipped with a radar, radio, telegraph, telephone, the Angel’s Fort served as an aerial observation post for German forces. After the war, it was taken over by the Russians. Until 1992, the fort was a point of aerial observation and communication with the ships of the Soviet Fleet.

West Fort – the first fortifications at the mouth of the Świna river appeared at the beginning of the 17th century. They were erected by a commander of the imperial army, Albrecht von Wallenstein, for the defence against the Danes and Swedes. Around these fortifications, fierce and bloody fights took place during the Thirty Years’ War. The Swedes, who ruled Świnoujście at that time, were expanding the already existing defensive ramparts for next several dozen years. In 1721, Świnoujście returned under the rule of Prussia, and in 1746 Frederick II, King of Prussia, raised its rank to that of a sea harbour.
