Full description

The Peter and Paul Fortress construction was the starting point for the foundation of St. Petersburg. The date of its foundation today is considered the Day of the City, and the first name of the fortress lives in the name of the new capital. Constructed for the protection of lands in the delta of Neva, Peter and Paul Fortress, in fact, was the main political prison. And Peter and Paul Cathedral inside the fortress became the main shrine for the Tsar dynasty.

Today the oldest fortress of the city is a part of the Museum of History of St. Petersburg. On your tour you will learn all about its history and significance to the people of St. Petersburg.
