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.

The palace gardens and fountains are truly spectacular and worth waiting for them to be put on to music. Try and get a good spot to see the fountains as it gets very croweded. Do stroll through the gardens to discover lots of hidden gems.
