The history of the Konstantinovsky battery dates back to the XNUMXth century. During the defense of Sevastopol during the Crimean War, the British fleet bombarded the fortress. During the Great Patriotic War, the defenders of the fort ensured the evacuation of civilians and military personnel from the northern side of the city to the southern part, and then the withdrawal of Black Sea ships fleet from the Sevastopol bay.
