Bulgar fortification’s remains

Location: Elabuzhsky district

The place is known to the local population by the name Kotlovskaya shishka (Kotlovka basin bump). Once an ancient settlement was here, possibly in the middle of the first millennium AD. Later this high ground, well and naturally defended and convenient for observing the surrounding countryside, was used by the Bulgars in the 12th century as one of the military outposts of the state to the northeast.
