Imperial Palaces Tour - Peterhof

Culture and History tour in St. Petersburg

Tour Price : from 70 EUR per person Duration : 5 hours Languages: English, German

Peterhof is perhaps St. Petersburg's most spectacular Imperial estate. Nestled on the shore of the Gulf of Finland (part of the Baltic Sea), the palace was built on a sixteen-metre-high bluff lying less than a hundred metres from the shore.The palace was built by Peter the Great initially as a resting place and some buildings still retain modest “Peter’s Dutch Style”. But first Peter and then Elizabeth intended to rival the famous Versailles in France so the garden was decorated with fountains operating without pumps while the palace was redecorated by F. Rastrelli in the glamorous “Elizabeth’s Baroque Style”.

Peterhof reminds us both of the epoch of Peter with his passion for the sea and water, and the time of generous and frivolous “Merry Empress” Elizabeth. We will drive to Peterhof by private car or minivan or go by hydrofoil boat, walk around the Upper and Lower parks, enjoy cascades and fountains, visit one of the Imperial palaces.
