Peter and Paul Fortress: Engineers' House

Interesting
Built in 1749 for the engineers in charge of maintaining the fortress, this pink and white house also contained workshops and archives. Since 1997 it has housed a branch of the St. Petersburg History Museum. Enjoy the furniture, lamps, porcelain, books and paintings, as well as the fine reconstructions of 19C interiors.
