Peter And Paul Fortress - Review
One of the most important locations in Saint Petersburg, this fortress was established by Peter the Great. Originally built out of wood in 1703, the fortress was completely rebuilt using stone from 1706 to 1740.
Domenico Trezzini was the man behind the marvelous designs of this fortress. Today, the State Museum of Saint Petersburg History is the main tourist attraction in the fortress but by no means is it the only attraction.
Among other places of interest within the walls of the fortress, the Peter and Paul Cathedral and the Grand Ducal Museum are of primary importance. There are some sandy beaches located outside the walls of the fortress. These beaches are a great place to relax and unwind after checking out the fortress itself.

Peter And Paul Fortress, Saint Petersburg Reviews
Great place to be visited, especially on a sunny day. There is much history and culture, too, inside this citadel surrounded by the river Neva. There is also a beach but swimming in Neva is not recommended. Nice views across Neva on historic buildings on the neighbouring islands.
Very nice, beautiful place and adjoining is d 15 min helicopter ride. The place is historic and worth a visit. Adjoining is d laningrad zoo a must watch place. Just come this place and you are done with half of d city tour main attractions in close proximity....
Stronghold in the center of Saint Petersburg, very worth visiting, especially the church with all the tombs of the Czars. If you look out around the premises you may spot the cat living there, but watch out as she does not give a lot of confidence to tourists ;)
Its a unique place that is very well maintained, not too crowded and its simply relaxing taking a walk through here and looking at these old buildings. This place is really worth seeing!
No questions - a must visit stop while one is in St. Petersburg. Try coming early to beat the crowds. Government exhibition (5 different locations) - best bang for the buck.
