What to expect

Peter and Paul Fortress is the place where the history of St. Petersburg originated. It was here that the first stone was laid, it was from here that the new city began to grow. The fortress has forever preserved the contradictory history of the beautiful northern city it gave birth to. Enjoy an interactive audio tour of this iconic place!

If you're looking for a full immersion in the history of St. Petersburg, then the fortress is a must-visit! A detailed audio commentary will tell you what was located within its walls at different times, what architectural features characterized the new capital of Russia, and how Peter I managed to create a city that could compete with many European capitals in just 20 years.

Get acquainted with the Peter and Paul Fortress from the Ioannovsky Bridge, from which you will begin the journey deep into the fortress. During the tour, you will also be able to visit the interior of Peter and Paul Cathedral, learn about its history and admire the interior decoration (tickets not included).
