The shape of the fortress is a hexagon with unequal sides. During construction works the principle of bastion was used for the first time in Russia.

In 1712 architect D. Trezzini began a large-scale construction of the Peter and Paul Cathedral. The construction work continued for more than 20 years. The temple had a unique and new design for the 18th century.
