Centuries ago, the Russian Emperor Peter I trained artillery at the gate of the former Fortress Friedrichsburg which drawings became the basis for the Peter and Paul Fortress. Today, the gate is the only element left of the old fortress. It is a branch of the Museum of the World Ocean and its exposition is devoted to the history of shipbuilding. Visiting the Friedrichsburg Gate, one can attend a lesson at the nautical school or drop by Peter the Great’s room. A collection of traditional boats of the people of the world is displayed at the territory.
