GRAND DUCAL BURIAL CHAPEL (PETER AND PAUL FORTRESS)

The building of the Grand Ducal Burial Chapel was erected in 1896. The Burial Chapel is connected to the Peter and Paul Cathedral with a gallery, in which the Royal rooms were created – rooms for rest for members of the ruling family. Now in the Royal Room there is an exhibition of objects – offerings on the royal graves. 60 concrete crypts for burial of members of the imperial family were made under the floor during construction. The graves are decorated with tombstones and memorial structures. During the World War II a bomb shelter was built beneath the building.

Please note!

The ticket office of the Museum you need is to the left of the Peter and Paul Cathedral, opposite the Boat House. In the ticket office you will be issued a comprehensive ticket to visit three sites – the Peter and Paul Cathedral, the Grand Ducal Burial Chapel and the Trubetskoy Bastion Prison.

The map of the location of three museums and the ticket office on the territory of the Peter and Paul Fortress you can find in the photo gallery below.

The territory of the Peter and Paul Fortress (within the walls) is open daily from 9:30 am to 9 pm.

    “What to see in Moscow? There are many options. As for us, we went to Pokrovsky Sobor straight after buying CityPass. According to the guidebooks, it is one of the best places to visit in Moscow. We saw Pokrovsky Cathedral on many postcards and knew that it was a religious symbol of Moscow, that’s why it was our first choice. And only then we went to the Kremlin. Being so individual the exterior and interior of St. Basil’s Cathedral are impressive. It’s a true eye candy! We really liked the picturesque view of the Red Square and the Moskva River from the cathedral viewpoint. By the way, using the pass we skipped the line which was great! The line was huge during the FIFA World Cup. Apparently, it is not so easy to get the tickets to St. Basil's Cathedral during the high season. With Moscow СityPass you just need to show it to security guards and they will let you go to the ticket office to validate the pass. Inside the church you can also get an audio guide. Highly recommended!”

    Thank you Moscow CityPass for unfogettable time in Moscow! We've bought 2 Passes, for me and my girlfriend. We saved around 90 euros and a lot of time! It was awesome to enter Kremlin and Tretyakov gallery without queues, because threre were really huge queues! And of course discounts in the top restaurants was preety addition :) Recomended to everyone who is going to Moscow ^ - ^
