private tour or photostroll with a licensed guide

Peter and Paul Fortress:
the cradle of St. Petersburg

/ heart of the city /

That small island with rich history takes us back to XVIII century. A tour that explains why and how the new capital of the Russian Empire came to be here.
That citadel has been there for over 300 years — one of the first buildings of the city constructed with the aim of defending the territory of the future capital of the Russian Empire.

The fortress contains several notable buildings clustered around the Peter and Paul Cathedral, including the Mint, the political prison (now a museum we can visit) and a dozen museums. The cathedral is also known as a shrine of The Romanovs.

Nowadays it is the most important part of the State Museum of Saint Petersburg History.

The fortress walls overlook sandy beaches that have become very popular in St. Petersburg. In summer, the beach is often overcrowded, especially when a major sand festival takes place on the shore

The photostroll in the Fortress is a great option to see the historic scenery and keep memories in photographs.
The tour includes: a walk around the island and 2 museum visits (Cathedral and prison)
