We invite you to visit Peterhof – the former tsars residence, a genuine masterpiece of the world architecture, accompanied by professional English-speaking guide.
Peterhof - luxurious residence, located along the Western part of the city on the coast, 29 kilometers away from St. Petersburg. This is a magic combination of green parks, colorful gardens & majestic palaces. Here in the 18th and the 19th centuries a grandiose complex of eleven parks, dozens of buildings, and pavilions with more than 200 fountains and numerous sculptures was formed in the area of over 1000 hectares.
The Grand Palace built for Elizabeth in baroque style is a composition centre of the Ensemble. Together with your English-speaking guide, you will visit the Palace with its shiny cupolas and the marvelous East Chapel, the Chesma Hall with paintings of the Battle of Chesma, the East and West Chinese Cabinets, the Picture Hall and other rooms within the Palace.
You will have the chance to enjoy the beauty of the Peterhof Fountain Park with its romantic atmosphere and picturesque views. There are more than 60 fountains, which up to today operate without the use of pumps, working exactly as they have been designed as more than 300 years ago. The Grand Fountain Cascade, which is unique both technically and artistically, form a decorative pedestal for the Palace. The Grand Cascade embellished with numerous fountains, gilded statutes, bas-relief, and vases is crowned with the sculpture group known as “Samson Tears Open the Lion’s Jaws”, which is dedicated to the victory of Russia in the Northern War.
As you travel to Peterhof, you will be given detailed information about the history of the Peterhof road and the town of Peterhof. Upon arrival you will visit Grand Palace & have a pleasant walk along the park.
Attention! the fountains operate during spring & summer periods (from the 27th of April in 2019). In the offseason we have a pleasant walk along the park without fountains.
