Peter and Paul Fortress always has something to see
« on: January 03, 2009, 09:28:54 PM »
The fortress was founded on the Neva River on May 27, 1703 by Peter the Great and thus St. Petersburg was born.

It contains the Peter and Paul Cathedral with a spire 404 feet in the air (tallest building, at least until Gazprom), numerous exhibits and museums.

There are small entrance fees to many exhibits and though the fortress is open everyday, the exhibit buildings are closed on Tuesdays.

Take Gorkhovskaya Metro, walk towards the Neva River
