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 - Write a Review
They have a special combined offer for all the 5 museums at 600 rubles and you can do that in two days. I highly recommend the guided audios that go for 400 rubles. It makes it all worthwhile. The chimes go off at every hour and fill the whole place up with wonder. There are other attractions but you have to pay separately for them. The Amber Museum is free and they are really wonderful in educating you about the amber.
Fantastic complex with great information on the history of the Tsars. Put this location on your bucket list.
A huge fortress which has the Peter and Paul’s cathedral inside. The cost for seeing the main spots are 700rubles. But you have to pay more for the other attractions inside. There is a decent cafe towards the right as soon as you enter which serves good food for a decent price.
Free entrance to wander inside the walls, but the entrance to the multiple museums and the church have a cost, the place is an obliged visit if you come to St Petersburg. The views from this small island are wonderful.
Massive complex. Must visit for the Cathedral. The emperor's tombs are beautiful
