Peter and Paul Fortress is the historical heart of Saint Petersburg. The date of the foundation – May 27 1703 – celebrated as city’s birthday. The fortress founded by Peter I, the project created by French engineer Lambert and Peter I himself. Originally, the fortress was wooden, finally covered in stone by the end of XVIII century. The main landmark is the Peter and Paul Cathedral (architect D. Trezini 1733) and family tomb of Russian Emperors. The baroque style cathedral was the highest in Russia until 1952 and in Saint Petersburg until 2012 (122,5 meters). The spire decorated with the sculpture of angel, which became one of the symbols of the city. One of the oldest traditions of the city is the cannon shot at 12:00 every day from the fortress wall.
