Castles and Palaces
   

Castles in Russia

Over the course of the centuries, Russia wasn’t attacked many times, thus the need to build defensive structures was low.

So instead of finding medieval castles like in other countries, in Russia the best way to get a glimpse into the history of Russia is through its palaces. For example the Winter Palace in Saint Petersburg was the residence of the Romanov’s. Or the complex of Kremlin in Moscow is the most well known landmark in the whole Russia.

But you can also find some nice castles in Russia, like the Swedish built Vyborg Castle or the Ivangorod Fortress.
