Explore the expansive Peter and Paul Fortress, once used as a political prison. Throughout the tour your guide narrates the city's history and points out architectural masterpieces, including the Russian Museum, the Church of the Savior on Blood, Smolny Cathedral, and the statue of Peter the Great.

The cathedral that sits in the center of the fortress is the city's tallest building as well as the burial place of Russian tsars, from Peter I to Alexander III. Your guide fills you in on the history of the fortress, from its conception as defense for the city to its repurposing as political prison during the Russian Revolution.

Later, enjoy a panoramic city tour of St. Petersburg, gaining up-close views of the neo-classical Winter Palace in the world's 4th largest square—Palace Square—and the city's oldest standing building, St. Isaac's Cathedral, with its impressive gilded dome.

In addition to the city's famous landmarks, you also get to glimpse some of the lesser-known highlights, including the beautiful Smolny Cathedral and the statue of the Bronze Horseman.
