Full description
This tour begins with a scenic drive to the Peterhof residence. Peterhof was a brainchild of Peter the Great and was without a doubt his most ambitious project.

Visit the Lower Garden, which retains its appearance of the mid-18th century, and marvel at the spectacular fountains and statues. While walking towards the Gulf of Finland you may feel the scope of the area and admire small stylized pavilions located in different corners of the garden.

In the middle of the park you’ll see the largest cascade, which is one of the most exquisite in Europe. The Upper Garden with the oldest Neptune fountain in the middle is another gem of Peterhof. The fountain’s fascinating history can be traced back to 17 century when it was produced in Germany.

Next you’ll enter the Grand Palace for a tour. The palace served as an official royal summer residence until the revolution of 1917. Admire interiors decorated in baroque, classical and oriental styles. One of the main highlights of the visit is the study of Peter the Great, which has retained its original design for nearly 3 centuries.
