PETER AND PAUL CATHEDRAL (PETER AND PAUL FORTRESS)

Peter and Paul Fortress, a unique historical and architectural monument, as well as a monument of the art of fortification.

The center of this architectural ensemble, dating from the 18th to the beginning of the 20th century, is the St. Peter and St. Paul Cathedral (1712-1733, architect Domeniko Trezzini), a chef d’oeuvre of Early Russian Baroque.

Its steeple, reaching a height of 122.5 meters, is crowned by a gilded spire and a flying angel, which one is one of the renowned symbols of the city. In the cathedral, which originally served as a burial place for he House of the Romanovs, rest the remains of Russian emperors from Peter the Great to Nicholas II.
