Initially built as a fort to protect the future Russian capital, the fortress never fulfilled its purpose. It mainly served as a military base for the city garrison and also as a prison for high ranking or political prisoners. After the revolution it was converted into a museum, and today it is the central and most important part of the State Museum of Saint Petersburg History.

The Cathedral of SS Peter & Paul (1712-1733), with its landmark needle-thin spire, magnificent Baroque interior and burial site for most of the pre-Revolutionary Russian leaders, is the oldest church in St. Petersburg. It is also the tallest building in the Northern Capital (excluding the TV tower).
