Место, в котором должен побывать каждый человек, которому важна русская история и уважение к предкам! Форт Росс - самое южное русское поселение на территории Северной Америки! Вход платный. В нескольких сотнях метров через ручей на берегу можно выйти на старое кладбище. А чуть выше поселения , в нескольких сотнях метров имеется старый яблочный сад, который кормил поселенцев. Он, кстати, стоит на тихоокеанском разломе и я рядом гигантские реликтовые деревья, под названием Ред Вуд! Посмотрите на их ветки как они растут, и вам сразу станет понятно что земля под ними находится в постоянном движении и ждет своего часа.. Когда произойдет тектонический сдвиг Форт Росс станет островом.... Расположено примерно в 100 милях от Сан-Франциско. Рядом с Фортом Росс растут виноградники. А в устье Русской реки(Рашен ривер), которая впадает в Тихий океан в нескольких десятках километрах от форта плавают тюлени. Был там с семьей в сентябре 2012 года. Это место с исторической энергетикой!
11 сентября 1812 года основан Форт Росс - самое южное русское поселение в Северной Америке. Основателем поселения стала полугосударственная колониально-торговая Российско-американская компания, созданная под покровительством императорского дома. Российские территории простирались на несколько десятков километров вдоль побережья. Среди прочего, в 30 км от Форт-Росс действовал порт Румянцев, который располагался в одноименном заливе. В 10 км от поселения находилась река Славянка, ныне называющаяся Рашен Ривер (Русская Река). К югу от Форт-Росс были основаны три крупных поселения - Костромитиновское, Черных и Хлебниковские равнины. В 1841 году был подписан договор о продаже Форт-Росс швейцарскому авантюристу с мексиканским паспортом Джону Саттеру за 42,8 тыс. рублей серебром.
On a Christmas vacation, we decided to stay in the Russian River area and found the Fort Ross park through an internet search. We were vey impressed with the site, though the State government had a skeleton crew on site because of budget disputes (I think) and some of the facilities and exhibits were closed as a result. This did not diminish the historical gravitas greatly and the natural beauty is worth a foray down to the shore to watch (and hear) the waves. Its in a beautiful and quiet area not far from the city, with all the amenities and worth another trip, I think!
Wow! I didnt even know this place was here until we drove by. We quickly turned around and toured it. Its a California state Park so there is a small entrance fee. The day we went, they were having a special event, Alaska days. It was so fun to see the replica buildings of the old Russian fort. Some of buildings are original, but due to weather, most have been rebuilt. I never knew there was a Russian settlement in California that was also linked to Alaska. It was fascinating! They have a museum and gift shop too with a video. Our whole family loved seeing Fort Ross!
First of all, Highway #1 is a great experience itself - scenic road, high cliffs above the ocean, beautiful green hills all along the way. Fort Ross is a wonderful piece of California history, dating back to the year 1812. A few buildings are original, while most of the others are replicas (pretty good ones, though). All the structures are well-maintained; the parking lot is spacious, and easy to access from Highway #1. Visitors center has a really nice museum and a gift shop. Rangers are very friendly.
A very interesting historical place! Hank, who is a Program manager there, was very helpful and knowledgeable! He showed us a lot of interesting artefacts and told about life of Russians and Alaskans in Fort Ross in 19th century. Part of that presentation he even gave in a pretty good Russian. We also walked around this wooden Fortress and went inside the buildings there - the interiors are suprisingly simple but atmospheric. We really enjoyed our visit to Fort Ross.
Visited Fort Ross March 27th, 2017. Was extremely windy, however, most likely windy all of the time here. Didnt spoil the fun though. Plenty to do and see. $8.00 to park. No further fees to enter the self guided museum, or to venture through the fort itself. Lots of information about the history of the facility and the culture of the past peoples that lived and worked there. Highly recommend a visit for history buffs. Awesome views of the surrounding countryside.
I love this place. You guys really helped me out when I got lost in the forest with my service dog. Your gift shop staff was helpful, informative, and friendly, and your Cultural Interpreter was really cool. I did a tour of the park after you guys closed. I am happy you are keeping the history of Russian immigration alive. Thank you for your time and effort, and keep up the good work.
This place is worth the stop! The history of this place is fascinating. You can spend an hour plus here with all the sights. Sandys Cove is great, small and lots of shells on the beach, my 5 year old daughter loved it! You can pay the 8 bucks to get in and use the receipt at other state parks along the way to park. Totally worth it! Have fun and take pictures!
Stopped here as we passed by on Highway 1. A nice, small visitor center and open exploring of the fort itself. Guided tours available at specific times. Our favorite part was the walk down to the beach/cove where there are small tide pools and the occasional washed up abalone shell. Very quiet during our visit! $8 entry per car.
I see a Camera spot on Google maps, it is on the right side of CA-1 as you go north, and in the woods. This is NOT the fort, the fort is on the left side of the road between the road and the beach, near the Conservatory. You will see it to your left as you travel north up CA-1 before the left turn entry.
Beautiful location, friendly staff, and I learned a lot about CA history that I would otherwise never have known. Despite budget problems, the facilities seemed to be well cared for, and everything seemed to be open. We even saw some sea lions just off the beach.
Here you will find out that Russians came to Cali way before Westerners did! I sincerely enjoyed my stay at Fort Ross, and meeting their programs manager Hank Baum! Make sure to check the calendar on their website and come during an event! You will love it!
I went there for a field trip and it was really fun. We learned stuff, and even played games. The night watch was the best. The fact that there was no assigned sleeping area sucked, but I guess I should have bought an air mattress...
Amazingly preserved buildings! with canons. Beautiful. If you miss the turn off or cant decide then want to see the amazing buildings on the coast side, turn around, go back, and enjoy a walk through the past. Truly fantastic.
Wilder Westen wie im Kino. Interessant wie die Pelzhändler in den frühen Tagen gelebt haben.
Beautiful park that runs from the coastal mountains down to the coast itself. Beautiful forests above, interesting restored ruins of a Russian enclave, and incredible coastline. Well worth the stop on a Hwy 1 tour.
I was surprised to discover the place (I had limited expectations). With the right weather (important assumption) the place is really nice! coast, forest, fort, history explained, etc. Had a great time there
Pretty cool place. $8 entry per car. $8 per (2) motorcycles. Little quarter mile walk to the actual fort. Pretty cool to be able to freely walk around inside all of the buildings. Beautiful seaside views.
A surprise find! Interesting history and beautiful restoration. Plus, cannons! On the trail to the fort that is closer to the coast, theres a spur you can take early on that winds down to the water.
