Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

If strolling in the fascinating gardens is your thing, then The Park And Gardens of Peterhof is the best place to go! Incredible landscape and fabulous buildings all over the park can blow your mind with their magnificence and elegance. And if you ask me, fountains were one of the highlights of this exciting visit. I can't recommend it enough!

The garden of the Peterhof is really beautiful, you can make long walks and in summer have a picnic and enjoy the quiet location. It is easily accessible via speed boat fro St. Petersburg. Highly recommended to visit together with the palace.

While lavish palaces like Peterhof you can see in many places worldwide and they look pretty much the same, gardens of this complex put Peterhof above others.
The area of Peterhof parks and gardens is huge. It stretches all the way to Finnish bay - the Lower gardens, and behind the Palace towards the road - the Upper gardens.
More interesting and nicer are the lower gardens with its prime attraction - the Cascade fountains. Beside that, there're several more smaller fountains spread around.
The gardens are landscaped after Versailles', which Peter the Great frequented and wanted the same at his place.

I've never been to a better looking gardens.Well, maybe I have, but this place is amazing in design, architecture and details. A must visit in St. Petersburg area (we came here with a shore excursion).

Beautiful garden and fountains.
Too bad the palace and some fountains were closed. Best to access by hydrofoils departing near the Hermitage.

Grand Cascade fountains are a must see if you are in St Petersburg. Peter the
Great was heavily influenced by French style and a trip to Versailles from which he clearly drew inspiration. There are some similarities with Villa D'Este (Rome) too.

A massive reconstruction took place after demolition during WW2 and the fountains are amazing. I am glad I went.

There are some lovely fountains and views to be seen through the Park but not an awful lot in the way of flowers.

Highly Recommended

There are very extensive gardens at Peterhof that are usually not included in guided tours because of time restrictions. Since we were on a private tour with plenty of time, we had an extended walk around the gardens after visiting the palace (reviewed separately) but I must say that apart from the main fountains and the gardens immediately adjacent to these, the remainder were fairly average. Some small fountains, classic statuary, topiary hedges, etc but nothing that you wouldn't see at dozens of other classical gardens.
So definitely see the fountains but don't worry if you don't see the rest of the gardens (only 2.5 stars without the fountains).
