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.
