Recommendation by Lemi

Delve into Russian history at Peter and Paul Fortress! Established in 1703, St. Petersburg’s original citadel has served different functions over the years. It was used as a military base, a prison for high profile politicians, and even a museum! Roam the area to see a number of significant sights such as the Grand Ducal Burial Vault and Saint Petersburg Mint (a coin manufacturing facility). Keep an eye out for the Peter and Paul Cathedral, the burial ground of all Russian emperors!
