Citadel - The Wall

Warsaw, Poland

Alexander's Citadel, later called the Warsaw Citadel, was built by the Russian authorities between 1832- 1834, by personal order of Tsar Nicholas I after the 1830 November Uprising.
It was intended to keep this rebel city obedient. The fortress is a pentagon-shaped brick structure with high outer walls, enclosing an area of 36 hectares.
