The main attraction on the right Bank of the Neva River is the Peter and Paul fortress. However, there are other places on this side of the river that will be interesting to visit.
You can start your walk along the right Bank of the Neva river from Petrovskaya embankment, near the Museum "Peter I's House". This is the very first house (wooden) built in Saint Petersburg in 1703. The construction of the Northern capital of Russia began with this house. Next to the house, there is a monument to the Lions of Shih Tzu. A Sobornaya mosque was built in the 19th century in the Bukhara style near Trinity square. Then you need to go to the Peter and Paul Fortress.
In the Peter and Paul fortress there is the Peter and Paul Cathedral, where all the emperors of Russia were buried in the beginning of the 18th century. There are several museums in the fortress. From the Peter and Paul fortress, you can go to the Arrow of Vasilievsky island and then to the Kuntskamera - the first Museum in Russia.
If you go further along the University embankment, you can see the Menshikov Palace. It was built by the influential count Menshikov at the very beginning of the 18th century, when the Tsar had only a small house in Saint Petersburg. You can finish your walk along the right Bank of the Neva River near the sphinxes in front of the Academy of Arts.
