    The Peter & Paul Fortress is a trip back in time to see the extent of the Russian Empire in miniature. Here its Tsars lie buried in state, just yards from the prison-cells where their enemies and potential assassins were incarcerated and tortured – your visit encompasses both of these extremes of Empire. It’s all encompassed within the colossal walls of the most hotly-guarded military installation of the C17th – a textbook example of military engineering of its era. From its river-facing walls you’ll enjoy the most sumptuous view of the glories of St Petersburg’s royal and noble palaces – and all for free. And from the self-same viewpoint, the more unusual view of the citizens of St Petersburg sunbathing on the river beach of what was once the most feared political prison in the Russian Empire.

    Спасибо! Маршрут-супер. Не нужен экскурсовод. Захотел-задержался, захотел-прошёл мимо.

    тур нормальный, единственный минус, постоянно приходится смотреть куда дальше идти. Если бы диктор говорил: поверните туда-то было бы вообще супер.

    Позновательно. Но не всегда выбирает точку на карте по которой следуешь. Из за этого не удается прогулятся не смотря в экран. И дорога не очень четко прорисована.
