It's more than a fortress, it's a cathedral, a prison, a cemetery...Peter the Great defied nature and built it on the unstable island. Later it was used as a political prison where famous people as Dostoyevsky, Chernyshevsky and Gorky were kept there. The cathedral had the biggest bell and the tallest spire (122.5 meters). It's also the burial place of Peter the Great and the Romanovos.
