Every year the city celebrates its birthday on May 27 – the same day the fortress was founded and it’s no coincidence! The foundation of Peter and Paul Fortress gave birth to a new Russian city, St. Petersburg. Peter the Great strategically chose this location for his year-round port city, his ‘paradise’.
Join us to learn about Peter’s vision, the rise of the city, the first prison in the new territory and the Romanov burial ground.
