Peterhof is the luxurious residence of the Tzars and it is located in the Western part of the city on the coast of the Gulf of Finland. It is a magic combination of green parks, colorful gardens and majestic palaces. The complex made of eleven parks, dozens of buildings and pavilions with more than 200 fountains and numerous sculptures was constructed on an area of over 1000 hectares.
The palace was founded in 1714, and for a long time it amazed its guests with its wonders. It also survived the catastrophe of WWII, serving as a hospital and military food warehouse. During the tour, appreciate the work of the restorers: a lot of effort, money and dedication have been invested in the Grand Palace to allow it to regain the admirable appearance it has today.
In the palace built by the architects Braunstein, Leblon, Michetti, Rastrelli, you will walk through several halls: Throne, Oak study of Peter I, Chesme, Kartinny, Dancing, as well as the Blue drawing room and the White dining room.
