Peter and Paul Fortress

St. Petersburg, Russia
4.8 / 9
The protective structure and the historical center of St. Petersburg at the beginning of the 18th century, from which the construction of the city began. The fortress was never used for its intended purpose (it served as a prison). The architectural ensemble consists of fortress walls, bastions, front gates and administrative buildings. The Peter and Paul Cathedral in the fort has long been the main temple of the capital. It is built in the style of the classic "Russian Baroque".
