Diagonally across the Neva River from the Hermitage, is the Peter-and-Paul Fortress, the first construction of St. Petersburg put up by Peter the Great in 1703 to provide protection from the Swedes. It lost its military significance before it was completed. Its guns never saw any action and were put to use as a flood -warning signal, and the fortress housed a political prison for two hundred years. One of its first prisoners was Alexis, Peter the Great's own son, accused of subversion and treason and subsequently tortured to death under Peter's supervision. Other famous prisoners interned here were Dostoevsky, Lenin's elder brother Alexander, Leon Trotsky. The Fortress Cathedral is the burial place of most of Russia's Tsars and Tsarinas from the 18th century onwards, including Peter the Great.

It is located about 30 miles from the city centre, on the south shore of the Gulf of Finland. Peterhoff is often referred to as Russian Versailles. The idea of creating the residence as luxurious as the one of the French kings belongs to the Peter the Great himself. He personally chose the site where several water underground springs were discovered nearby. The luxurious Great Palace is a unique product of two centuries of work which houses the remarkable collection of paintings, sculpture, furniture, porcelain and glass. Rooms dating back to Peter’s time can be found alongside gold-shining baroque halls of the middle of the XVIII century complimented with the calm austerity of rooms from the Classical period. It is situated as if on a pedestal above the shining gold statues and sparkling water of the Great Cascade and the jets of the terrace fountains. The visit to the Great Palace can be supplemented with visits of minor Palaces (Monplaisir, Marly, and Cottage) and pavilions which are abundant in the area.

It lies 25 km south of St. Petersburg. The baroque Catherine Palace was left in ruins by the Germans at the end of World War II, and is today a masterpiece of restoration. The exterior features golden domes and blue and white facade moldings, while the interior positively gleams and glitters with mirrors, chandeliers and gilded wood-carvings. The parks of the estate with the enchanting Grotto Pavilion, the Hermitage and the Chinese Pagoda add to the splendor of the palace.
