Lonely Planet review

SS Peter & Paul Cathedral, in the grounds of Peter & Paul Fortress, has a magnificent baroque interior, quite different from other Orthodox churches, and a landmark needle-thin spire. All of Russia's prerevolutionary rulers from Peter the Great onwards (except Peter II and Ivan VI) are buried here. Peter I's grave is at the front on the right. Nicholas II and his family - minus Alexey and Maria - were the latest most controversial additions in 1998.
