What You'll Do
  • Explore Peterhof Palace and parks and see spectacular fountains
  • Get inside access to the world of tsars and Russian emperors
  • Escape the heat and dust of the city and stroll among refreshing cascades
  • Try to avoid - or seek out - the joke fountain that will spray you if you step on a certain paving stone!
  • Add an extra thrill and upgrade to a round-trip speedboat ride there and back
Overview
Marvel at the 18th-century fountains of Peterhof Palace in St. Petersburg, and see a balletic display of cascades, joke fountains and ornate gardens. Wander the splendid parks, and admire vast expanses of green foliage, landscaped areas and more.
What to Expect
Take a scenic 5-hour tour of Peterhof Palace from St. Petersburg and admire exquisite Baroque and Rococo designs. Stroll through the landscaped parks of the Russian tsars of the 18th century.

Known throughout the world as a jewel of Russian art, Peterhof Palace and gardens was laid out on the orders of Peter the Great. Often referred to as “Russia’s Versailles,” it is every bit as extravagant as the French chateau.

Explore the Grand Palace, creating an imposing impression from the Lower and the Upper Parks. From its marble terrace, enjoy magnificent views over the Grand Cascade, made up of staggering waterfalls, no less than 64 fountains, and 37 elaborate statues. Encounter the chessboard Chess Mountain, trees disguised as umbrellas, and a fountain that sprays anyone unlucky enough to step on a particular paving stone!

For an added adrenaline kick, you can take a 45-minute round-trip speedboat ride, arriving in style, although perhaps not quite as dignified as the aristocrats of old!
