Once a formal garden built for Peter the Great, this popular park still has more than 80 of the original marble statues and sculptures and houses Peter's Summer Palace, a simply designed two-story building that now displays many of the ruler's own artifacts.

It reminds me of versay palace. Near border of Finland. Have something to wear. It's chilly most of the time. Two or there bathrooms inside. Coffee and ice cream are sold. You can buy souvenirs outside the garden.

It was a fun day out from St Petersburg. We got the boat which was less than £20 each return and there was a small pretty beach area to sit in if you wanted and the sun was shining for us. Then we went to...More

We visited here this morning arriving at Peterhof Grand Palace at 09.00 to try to avoid the crowds. It was slightly quieter at that time. The queue we were in was not long so we got in reasonably quickly. The palace is well worth seeing,...More

What an absolutely amazing place to visit. Everywhere you go seems to be so breathtaking. Our tour went around the Palace before they opened to the public and it was really worth it. The decor, opulence, architecture and history all come alive as you try...More

It is easy to see the roots of the revolution once you see for yourself the over the top construction - considering much of this was done when the regular people were scratching out an existence. Everywhere you look things are awe inspiring. Old world...More

Another glittering palace of the Russian Emperors, but well worth a visit. It's quite crowded so get tickets ahead of time and do your research or get a guide to make the most of this attraction.

Once again another example of the extreme wealth of the Czars and Czarinas of the Romanoff era! The grounds with the fountains were spectacular!! The hydrofoil ride to get to Peterhof was great fun!

Astonishing architecture! Everything is made out of the luxury metals and stones. It is a '"must see" place. Spend some money but get a guided tour here, like I did. It is a lifetime memory, folks...

We went with SPB tours with a small group. They picked us up at the cruise ship in a small bus (10 people + guide and driver), took care of the admission to Peterhof, gave us a nice tour of the interior and exterior, and... More

Hello! I´ve noticed that on Peterhof website, it´s possible to buy the tickets to the "Autumn Festival of Fountains titled "WALKING FOR THE THREE SEAS". The ticket is valid on Sept. 15 and 16 from 6 to 9 pm on the Lower Park, and the show starts at 9 pm. I´d like to know: -Is Peterhof Park and Palace open those two day before 6 PM?. -Is it possible to visit Peterhof earlier that day and then stay to the Festival?. Do they get everyone out at 6 PM to then allow people with the Festival tickets to enter?. -If this were the case, do I have to purchase one "regular" ticket to the Lower Park during the day and then other ticket to the Festival or is there some sort of "combo ticket" instead?. -Do the boats from Peterhof extend their time of departure those days after the festival is finished or the only way back to SP is by land?. Thank you! I couldn´t find any answer for this questions on the web. Lucas

We didn't apply for a visa to enter Russia prior to travel however when taking part on a shore excursion this acts as a visa but you needed to stay with the tour guide and return to the ship with them. You cannot go off on... More
