The St. Peter and Paul Fortress was founded on 27 May 1703 to defend St.Petersburg against enemy raids. From the middle of the 18th century it contained Russian political prison. Located within the St. Peter and Paul Cathedral is the burial vault of Peter the Great and other Russian tsars.
In addition to viewing the ancient fortifications on the grounds of the fortress, one can visit Peter and Paul cathedral, designed by D.Trezzini, which is the city’s tallest building (the height of the spire is 121.8 meter); the house of the "grandfather of the Russian navy", where exact copy of Peter I’s little boat is kept and the Mint.

Since 2013 the lavish 18th century Shuvalov Palace, St. Petersburg has been the home of Museum Fabergé and holds the world’s largest collection of Fabergé eggs. Those in the collection were commissioned by the last Russian emperors Alexander III and Nicholas II. At the time European society considered Russia unparalleled in silver and gold decorative arts. The museum owes its existence to a staggering act of altruism by Viktor Vekselberg, who, in 2004 began The Link of Times Cultural and Historical Foundation with the idea of returning Russian culturally significant artefacts and artworks for public display to Russia.

It is known that St. Petersburg is called the Northern Venice. A city built over 42 islands, St. Petersburg is surrounded by water and interlaced with a complex web of rivers, canals and channels that seem to bind the city together, while also marking the borders of its different districts and neighborhoods.

St. Petersburg is often referred to as Venice of the North. From the very outset the city was built on water, on numerous islands in delta of Neva River. The combination of the architecture and water in Saint Petersburg, as well as in Venice, has a special charm.

A new perspective on the city can be gained from water-level and the boat trip visit some areas of the city that might not be reached on ground.
There are 342 bridges in the city limits of Saint Petersburg. 
Peter the Great was designing the city as another Amsterdam and Venice, with canals instead of streets and citizens skillful in sailing. Initially, there were only about ten bridges constructed in the city, mainly across ditches and minor creeks.
