Description:

Spend a day exploring the magnificent Peterhof estate. With a dreamy seafront setting, grandiose palace, and charmingly manicured gardens boasting over 140 fountains, Peterhof is widely recognized as being the most spectacular imperial palace in St. Petersburg.

Step into the Peterhof Palace and be transported back to the days of Catherine the Great and Peter the Great. Wander through vast rooms with opulently decorated interiors and furniture collected since the beginning of its construction in 1714.

The palace itself sits amid an enormous park, adorned with over 140 fountains, statues, and pavilions. The Upper Garden is a formal French-style garden with 5 fountains including 1 depicting Neptune, the God of the Sea. The estate's Lower Park lies between the Grand Palace and the seashore and boasts the world's largest system of fountains, earning the title the “Russian Versailles.” The park's unique fountain system was designed in the 18th century and doesn't require the use of any pumps to operate.



Cancellation Policy: 4 days
Know before you book: The garden's fountains are only in operation between May and October.
