Beautiful sanctuary. Peter the Great and his family are buried there he died in 1725. Catherine the Great is also buried there and many other czars and Czarinas. Nicholas Romanov II , his wife and their children, including Anastasia, bones are buried here. The sense of history is humbling. This was my favorite stop in all St. Peyersburg.

This Russian Orthodox is like no other; it contains the crypts of the Czar Nicholas and his family. Their bodies are buried beneath the church and the marble memorials are inside.

This is quite an amazing building from the outside in what can often be a bit of a deery city. I found it strange that they charged you to go inside as it is a church?

Impressive area and beautiful cathedral. A must see to explore the Russian history. When lucky also join in with the choir. When its sunny then also visit the beach side of the fortress.

Final resting place for the famous Royal Family. I prefer the myth that Anastasia escaped! Final DNA testing wasn't completed until a few years ago.

It is a russian orthodox cathedral located inside the Peter and Paul Fortress in St. Petersburg. One major attraction is the graves of most of the Romanov rulers of Russia since Peter the Great. The interior is stunningly decorated and it is imposing with the high altar and the side altars richly worked and covered in gold. Do not miss... More

it is a place where most members of the Romanov are buried including the last family so it is great to be seen. There is also audioguide available so we were able to listen regarding Petrograd history
