You would never forgive you if you'll miss the opportunity to visit this attraction - it's beautiful any time of year, but most spectacular in srting/summed because of fountain cascade. Just marvelous!

My wife and I visited Petergof in October 2016. This was a great time to visit as it was not crowded. The fountains were our favorite part of this day trip from St Petersburg. Also the walk in the garden to the gulf of Finland from the back of the palace is amazing. This is a must see for those... More

Peterhof reminded me very much, of Versailles, but is considerably more ornate.This is a must see venue. Once you have been here, it is easy to understand why the Russian peasants revolted.The opulence is almost unbelievable!

This Palace is one hour away from the city center in St. Petersburg, so transportation needs to be planned accordingly. It is a beautiful palace to enjoy either walking in the gardens all the way to the sea, and the inside is extremely formal, a bit on the heavy side with the decorations, but it was built to impress, so...

The Grand Palace is fascinating. We visited the Palace with our private tour group and accessed it by boat. It is an impressive Palace. The grounds are stunning. Well worth a visit. Leave time to wander around and enjoy the fountains and garden.

I didn't visit the place in its interior, but the whole place, even the way to it on the boat is very pleasant. I spent time on the park and the gardens, chasing squirrels and breathing clean air. It's a very interesting testimony of the history of Russia, during the period of the Zars. A "must see" place
