The first architect of St. Petersburg

 "The First Architect of St. Petersburg" is an exposition located in the Peter and Paul Fortress about Dominico Trezzini, born 350 years ago, the main city planner of early St. Petersburg.
    It was Trezzini who was the author of such objects as the Peter and Paul Cathedral, the Summer Palace of Peter the Great and the Building of the Twelve Collegia on Vasilievsky Island - in general, those places without which the architectural and tourist appearance of the city is difficult to imagine. Trezzini was not only responsible for the construction of specific buildings, but also laid down a number of urban planning principles that were subsequently applied in the development of St. Petersburg.
