Fortress Peter and Paul  

Fortress of Peter and Paul sceen from across the Neva river. On the left is a part of the Trubetskoy bastion and on the right one face of the Naryshkin bastion (1725). The beach between them is a favorite sunning spot for Peterburgers. Behind the curtain between bastions is the spire of the Cathedral of Sts Peter and Paul. To its right is the dome of the Grand Duke's burial vault. Behind the Trubetskoy bastion is the Mint founded in 1724.
