Comments

Peter the Great ruled the Tsardom of Russia and later the Russian Empire from 1682 until 1725.  In many successful wars he expanded the Tsardom into a huge empire that became a major European power. In 1703 Peter gave the order to start building the Peter and Paul Fortress. The fortress was destined to turn into the second “northern” capital of Russia, - the great city of Saint Petersburg. It was declared the capital of the country in 1712 and remained so until the beginning of the twentieth century.
