The Peter and Paul fortress was built by Peter the Great and the Cathedral is inside the fortress. It is the oldest church in St. Petersburg. We were amazed by the beautiful architecture of this cathedral from inside and outside. From across the Neva River,...More

I was so impressed by the height of the steeple the first time we saw it from across the river from the Hermitage. It was very interesting to see the memorials to many of Russia's royalty.
