Annotation: 

The article considers the features of the industrial manufactures` accelerated development in the territories of St. Peters-Burkh (in modern Russia - St. Petersburg) in 1703-1724, under Peter I, including military industries (shipbuilding, metallurgy, manufacture of weapons), as well as civil industries (production of building materials: timber, limestone and lime, brick production; some types of civilian products). Such advanced development of industry and crafts allowed the city to turn from a fortress settlement into a big metropolitan city in a short period of time.
