The city was founded by Tsar  Peter the Great  on 27 May 1703 on the site of  a captured Swedish fortress , and was named after apostle  Saint Peter . Saint Petersburg is historically and culturally associated with the birth of the  Russian Empire  and Russia's entry into modern history as a European  great power . [11]  It served as a capital of the  Tsardom of Russia  and the subsequent  Russian Empire  from 1713 to 1918 (being replaced by Moscow for a short period of time between 1728 and 1730). After the  October Revolution  in 1917, the  Bolsheviks  moved their government to Moscow
