Visit Imperial Peterhof Fountain Park and Kronshtadt town in one day!


This full-day program was specially designed for those, who are already tired of museum queues and major highlights, for those, who prefer visiting less obvious and not that overcrowded, but really authentic places and see more, than an average tourist usually do. The tour is a perfect option for the guests, who come to our city for the second or more times. It also matches the desires of all, who would like to learn more about Russian history, cultural heritage, and art.

Itinerary

The tour starts at 9:00 in the morning, we DRIVE some 30 km to the South-West from the city, observing the old imperial road, "Soviet" industrial and suburban districts and modern urban, rural and resort areas, as well as some memorials to WWII.
PETERHOF is named "a pearl of the Baltic Sea". It is the oldest residence of Russian Emperors, and also the favorite one of Peter the Great. The landscape park with 178 fountains is spread over 600 hectares, shadowy alleys with trick fountains are pleasant to walk through on a hot summer day. Destroyed by Nazi in WW2 it raised from the ash like a phoenix bird to open its doors for you.
We visit the Grand Palace first and then go to explore the park. Upon your request, we may rent a golf-car to drive the whole thing through (35 min).
Optional LUNCH
KRONSHTADT is the Russian naval base and a lovely historic town, situated on an island (chain of forts).
