The Peter and Paul Fortress in St. Petersburg is located on the small Hare Island, which is the historic core of the city. The history of the city begins with the construction of this military edifice. The name was given after the Cathedral of Peter and Paul located inside the fortress, which became a new imperial sanctuary. In the Cathedral to 13 members of the Royal family are buried including Peter the Great and Catherine the Great. Although the Peter and Paul Fortress was intended to protect the city, it is renowned as a political prison.
The Church of the Savior on Spilled Blood marks the spot where Alexander II was fatally wounded in an assassination attempt on March 1, 1881. Stones with traces of the blood of the Tsar are preserved inside the Cathedral until now. The Church's final composition drew heavily from St. Basil's Cathedral in Moscow and the Vladimir Cathedral in Kiev.
The Church has an outstanding and varied collection of mosaic icons. Several icons were completed in the traditions of academic painting, modernist style and Byzantine icon painting.
The Faberge Museum has been operating since 2013 and is the biggest museum that houses a private collection of masterpieces created by Carl Faberge. The collection contains about 4000 items, some of them belonging to the families of the last two Russian Emperors, Alexander III and Nicolas II including Faberge eggs given to the Tsarinas to celebrate Easter.
