Prison in Trubetskoy Bastion in Petropavlovskaya fortress
Prison of Trubetskoy bastion - the main political prison of Russia was built in 1872 on the site of the dismantled inner walls of the Trubetskoy Bastion. It had 73 individual cells with very strict custodial system. Prisoners were completely isolated from one another and the outer world, so the Peter and Paul Fortress was soon called the «Russian Bastille».
