You need to be with a guide or apply for a visa to tour on your own. Our first day was the Peter & Paul fortress. This is were the Romanoff family have their tombs inside the church there. Our guide was young and she spoke perfect English. On the way there and back, she announced points of interest. Lots to see and to take pictures of. Lovely vibrant city and very clean. Read Less

Beautiful fortress. It was built for protection by Peter the Great in case of an attack by the Swedes. Many of the Russian tsars are buried here.
