Peter and Paul Fortress will be restored for the first time in 240 years

04 March 2021

Global restoration of the fortress has not been carried out since Catherine's times.

For almost two and a half centuries, many elements of the Peter and Paul Fortress have fallen into disrepair. The slabs of the structure protrude from the monolith of the wall; the elements holding them together have worn out. The TV channel "Saint Petersburg" tells about it.

According to the cited words of the director of the Museum of the History of St. Petersburg, Vladimir Kirillov, as part of the restoration, it will be necessary to disassemble slabs, strengthen the foundation, restore brickwork and rotted iron supports.
