Route and content of the tour
Built in 1872, the political jail in the Trubetskoy Bastion of St. Peter and Paul Fortress had housed a total of over 1500 prisoners, including Narodnaya Volya activist Andrei Zhelyabov, novelist Maxim Gorky, anarchist Peter Kropotkin, revolutionary Leon Trotsky, and other prominent figures in Russia’s history.
Although officially shut down in March 1918, it had still been used as a jail until 1921, with the Kronstadt rebels being its last prisoners. In 1924, it was converted into a museum.
