Fortress of Vladimir belongs to the ring of the fortifications around Warsaw Citadel. It was buid in 1852 when Poland was non-existing state shared between Russia, Prussia and Austria. Warsaw belonged to the Russian Partition as the center of the Congress Poland, a constitutional monarchy under Tsar. After the fall of the 1830 November Uprising the Tsar estabilished a military administration in Warsaw and started to erect Citadel and other fortifications used as an arsenal and a prison. One of them was the Fortress of Vladimir, which housed over 30 pieces of artillery, used to guard crossing the Vistula River. 3 storey fortress also had counterbattery shelters and it was surrounded by the moat with the shooting gallery.

Poles independence aspirations led to The January Uprising. The Fortress slopes were the place where Romuald Traugutt, the last supreme commander of the uprising was executed. At the beginnig of XX century the fortress served as the prison and the archive for the Warsaw Military District. In 1921 it was renamed to The Fortress of (Pilsudski) Legions. Nowadays its circular courtyard houses a restaurant, famous for excellent food and picturesque surrounding.
