St.Peter and St.Paul Fortress

The St.Peter and St.Paul Fortress (named after St.Peter and St.Paul cathedral) was founded on Zajachy Ostrov (Hare Island) in St._Petersburg, along with the city itself in 1703.

The fortress was never used for defence in a war but it is known for being a prison for political prisoners.
