What to expect

A trip to St Petersburg is never complete without visiting Peterhof. On this private tour with a professional guide and driver you discover Peterhof, which was founded at the beginning of the 18th century by the order of Peter the Great who always dreamt of turning Saint Petersburg into the European capital. After the visit to French Versailles Peter I decided to create an impressive palace and park with fountains that could leave the most demanding visitors speechless. You will be amazed by the luxury of the Russian Versailles, the abundance of fountains and the impressive amount of gold as well. The fountain system of Peterhof - one of the largest in the world, consists of 147 fountains, many of which were conceived personally by Peter the Great.

On our way to Peterhof, we will drive through residential areas by a car or minibus and our experienced guide will tell you some practical information about living in St Petersburg to make your way fly by quick and enjoyable. While walking in the park the guide will explain to you how the unique system of fountains works and will teach you to read the allegorical language of sculpture. The most popular places in Peterhof are the Chess Mountain cascade, Roman Fountains, numerous joke fountains, located near the Monplaisir Palace. Rising above the Grand Cascade is the Grand Palace of Peterhof – the summer residence of Peter the Great. You will have a guided excursion to the Grand Palace (Petrodvorets), where throughout the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, the finest Russian and West European architects worked on the facades and the interior décor, where Russian Emperors lived and celebrated their victories. At the end of the tour, we will return to the center of St Petersburg.
