What to expect

The "Russian Versailles" is a symbol of the rise of Russia to become a great power of Europe and so Peterhof Palace is undoubtedly one of the most magnificent palaces in Russia. With your guide you will admire the opulence of the imperial Peterhof Palace and its gardens, in which the fountains are a special feature.

The Peterhof palace, located 30 km from St. Petersburg and is dedicated to the god Neptune, built by the architect Pierre le Grand and it is considered a masterpiece both architecturally and historically. The Tsar's summer residence symbolizes primarily Russia's rise to the rank of a European naval power, and so Peterhof Palace aimed to spread Russian art and culture in Europe.

Discover the treasures of the imperial residence and hear interesting stories of the palace and the tsars who lived there with your guide. You will begin your visit to the Upper Garden and visit the extraordinary Neptune Fountain and the Chapel of the Palace. Visit the interior of the palace, where you can see the most remarkable masterpieces of art and the portraits of the Romanovs. Walk the grand staircase before entering the ballroom.

Here you will experience the majestic room with numerous mirrors and gilding. Then, travel to the Blue Salon, where you will learn more about the porcelain chandelier. You will complete your tour inside the palace in the Kronsaal, decorated with Chinese silk panels, and in the throne room.

Your tour will end in the Lower Garden with its thematic gardens. See the Great Cascade and enjoy the view of the sea on the horizon, which alone is worth a visit to the castle Peterhof.
