The Peter and Paul Fortress

See the ornate baroque cathedral, the burial place of Russian Emperors, a grim, former high-security prison for political prisoners (including such renowned figures as Dostoyevsky), and the mighty star fortress – all in one place!Peter and Paul Fortress is one of the most important places in St. Petersburg (it really couldn't be otherwise as it literally was the first permanent structure in the city). Residents sometimes affectionately call it "the granite heart of the city" and tell a lot of legends about the island it was built on (Hare Island), or about prisoners once kept within its walls. The elegant silhouette of the fortress with the Peter and Paul Cathedral towering above it is the trademark of St. Petersburg, its most widely recognised symbol. If you're in the mood, looking at the fortress' reflection in the waters of the Neva river, you can easily get lost into dreamy and soothing trance-like state (did you know that residents of St. Petersburg like to reflect a lot?)
