Chapter 12 : Fort Kalleby, Jelenton (our last stop)

Moving down Veldis Road, I arrive at Kalleby. Kalleby is a small area at the eastern most tip of Jelenton. Kalleby is marked as a historic site in Cannasera due to the Fort Kalleby Park.

Pic 1 : Fort Kalleby Park

Fort Kalleby Park is a historical preserved site which used to be an active fort of the Southern Tigerian Army in the period of 1710 to 1780. It was destroyed in the Battle of South Cannasera in 1780. Back in those times, different states had their army and they fought with each other to gain a foothold. It was only in 1783 that a common constitution was formed.

Fort Kalleby had since been left abandoned till the 1880s where villagers from nearby farmtowns discovered this site. The Tigerian Government then did rebuilding works and preservation of the remains. In WW2, Fort Kalleby miraculously survived the Buetonese artillery barrage. In 1950s, it was opened to the public as a historical site and has remained here till today. It offers breathtaking views and the remaining structures are a hit with tourists as they climb those steep stairs up the walls.

How to Get Here!

Pic 7 : Shops nearby offer food and drinks for sale if you intend to have a small picnic here.

Now for some of the notable sites in the park.

Pic 8 : Tunnel A entrance. It is a well-lit tunnel with ample ventilation and introductory boards to provide useful information and history for tourists. Wax figurines are also placed inside to allow tourists to better understand how things were in the past.

Pic 9 : Tunnel B entrance. Like Tunnel A, it is well lit and ventilated. However we have some people who have fears of entering the tunnel.

Pic 10 : Tunnel C entrance. A short walk into the edges of the park, this tunnel offers views of an underground bunker and leads back to Tunnel A entrance.

Pic 11 : Tower 1 is the most popular photo-taking site for most tourists. Be it at the foot of the tower or on the tower, photographers love this spot. We can spot occassional couples taking their wedding photos here.

That's all at my short trip to Jelenton. I'll have to head back to the city where life is back to normal. I hope to visit here again soon!
