Peter-and-Paul Fortress

The Cathedral of SS Peter and Paul is the oldest church in St. Petersburg, and the first  landmark in city. It is linked to both the history of the city and to the Romanov dynasty, as all rulers of Russia since Peter the Great were buried there.

The original Peter and Paul Cathedral was made of wood, but construction on the current stone cathedral began in 1712 designed by Domenico Trezzini, in Baroque style, influenced by Protestant churches of western Europe, was a dramatic departure from traditional Orthodox church architecture.

 It was consecrated on June 29, 1733, the shared feast day of Peter and Paul. It took 20 years to build.

The inside of the cathedral holds a fantastic iconostasis, completed by a group of more than forty Moscow architects under Ivan Zarudny from 1722-1727. The walls of the cathedral are also embellished with paintings of various bible themes, including many paintings of gospel stories by artists of the early and mid 18th century.

The needle-like spire rising from the bell tower of Peter and Paul reaches a height of 404 feet and provides a spectacular view of the city. The angel holding a cross at the top of the spire is one of the most important symbols of St. Petersburg.

"God Save the Tsar", to the accompaniment of a canon shot - a tradition which continues today. The clock was turned off, but in 1952 a new one was installed that chimed four times a day.
