This is the cradle of St Petersburg. The glorious history of our city started with the tiny military stronghold,
built on the island which at the time was populated only by hares (and you can still find the couple of hares there!). Now at the territory of the fortress you can see the burial place of the Russian Emperor sat the majestic Cathedral of St Peter and St Paul, the former horrible jail for prisoners of State that was impossible to escape, the weirdest statue of Peter the Great in the city, the so-called Gate of Death and many, many more. Take a walk on the cobbled stones and explore St Petersburg history.
