An excerpt from the article 37 facts about Saint Petersburg

It was being built in very difficult conditions (swampy, unfamiliar terrain, low temperatures). The pace of construction was tremendous, the city was being built with unprecedented momentum in Europe at the time. To intensify construction, Tsar Peter I forbade the erection of brick houses in Russia outside of St. Petersburg. It initially functioned as Petropol or Petropolis (city of stone).
