If you pick this tour, an ambient history-walk at the oldest construction of the city -Peter and Paul Fortress- awaits you. We'll see Saint Peter's Gate, make a stop by the most modern and non-conventional monument to Peter the Great and visit St.Peter and Paul Cathedral, the masterpiece of Domenico Trezzini, where the tombs of almost all the Grand Dukes of Romanovs are located. You'll enjoy an impressive view of the city from the pier of the Nevsky Gate, learn why our city is so vulnerable to floods, and how it had affected the citizens' way of life throughout centuries. Later, I'll show you other architectural landmarks on the fortress grounds and recount their history: The Mint, The Boat House, The Grand Ducal Burial Chapel. Our tour will end in the Trubetskoy bastion, the most secure political prison of the Russian Empire which no one ever managed to escape.
