Peterhof was the former summer residence of Peter the Great. It is world-known for the picturesque Lower Gardens with spectacular fountains, the Grand Palace and numerous smaller Palaces and pavilions representing “Russian Versailles“. The most impressing fact about Peterhof Gardens is that they are not run artificially. The pressure from the ground is natural and not supported by engines. In the palace you can see the legendary Oak Library which belonged to Peter the Great.
Please note, in summer we visit the Peterhof gardens on this tour and in winter we visit the Peterhof Palace. If you want to visit Peterhof for a longer period, please book Red Sun Tours Peterhof Tour.
