Peter the 1st planned to build a giant military port of Rogerwiek here. The plan envisaged that the mole would offer shelter for the entire vast navy of Russia. Construction of the military port started in 1716. Despite the efforts of thousands of convicts, the planned 2-km-long giant facility could not be completed and even the completed part was quite soon destroyed by autumn storms. In 1762, the Russians (Catherine II) renamed the sea fortress of Rogerwiek into Baltiiski Port (“Baltic Port”, Ger. Baltischport). The precipices and hills preserved from the fortress at the northern edge of the town are popularly known as the Peter’s Fortress or Muula Hills.
