Fortress which saves you

It is the Peter and Paul Fortress in Saint-Petersbourg.
When Peter the Great estabilished Saint-Petersbourg, this buliding was a simple fortress on an island in the Neva. But his wife was against this marshland and imprecated curses on the city. Accordingly Peter put a holy angel to the top of the fortress which has saved Saint-Petersbourg several times.
It has 2 entries and 3 exits! So, it was not only a fortress but a prison too. The third exit is goes into the Neva. It used to the doomeds. But now, it is an only sight.
