Enjoy one day in Peterhof with your private guide


The Great Palace of Peterhof is one of the most beautiful palaces in Europe, protected by UNESCO. The whole complex was founded by Peter the Great in 1714. According to Peter's concept, Peterhof was supposed on the one hand to rival the most celebrated residences of European monarchs, and on the other to become a triumphant monument to the successful conclusion of Russia's struggle for access to the Baltic Sea.
The palace was a crown residence of the Russian Emperors and Empresses for 200 years. It is located in the center of the magnificent park with 150 fountains. Unforgettable sight! This tremendous ensemble extending for 10 km along the Gulf of Finland and covering an area of over 1000 hectares.
