On the road H6054 leading from Grodno to Sopotskin there are several interesting objects, including the defensive fort number 2. The construction of this section of the Grodno fortification was carried out from 1913 to 1915.

In early September 1915, during the offensive of the German troops, the soldiers defending Fort II were ordered to leave their positions and undermine the defensive structure.
