Where is Peterhof

Peterhof is a magnificent country residence of Russian tsars, founded by Peter I in 1705 on the shore of the Gulf of Finland. The ensemble of palaces and parks of Peterhof is a triumphal monument in honor of Russia’s struggle for access to the Baltic Sea. The ensemble includes the Grand Palace, the Cottage Palace, the palaces of Marley and Monplaisir, the Catherine building, and the Hermitage Pavilion. Peterhof parks, the Upper Garden and the Lower park, are of no less interest.

The Peterhof compounds include the English landscape park, the Village and Meadow parks, and the Alexandria park.   Peterhof’s chief decoration is hundreds of various fountains that form a picture an unrivaled beauty. Notable among them is the famous Great cascade designed by Peter the Great. This is one of the most grandiose fountain structures in the world: a huge grotto with richly decorated waterfall stairs on the sides. The most colorful symbol of the Russian victory over the Swedes is the “Samson” fountain with a statue of the biblical hero tearing the lion’s jaws apart.

Peterhof Tour is also a good addon to the Catherine Palace tour. Catherine Palace tour is available to book separately and on the cruise visa-free programme. The tour is also available for disabled travelers

St Petersburg as part of Baltic Cruise

We were a group of 10 friends doing a 9 day Baltic cruise; 2 which were spent in St Petersburg. With Elena as our guide for the 2 days we really had a wonderful time. We were picked up and dropped off at the ship terminal and every minute was filled with fantastic visits to various places in the city. Elena has an excellent knowledge of the history in the city ranging from churches and historic sites right through to where to get a bargain!
Our first evening was spent with Elena and her family at their family home eating a traditional Russian meal, and drinking some local Russian Vodka. We could all agree that this was the highlight of our holiday.
Should you get Elena as your tour guide you are in for a fantastic time!
Thanks Elena for giving us unforgettable memories.

Peterhof Fountains were absolutely gorgeous!

Can't recommend it more! We booked the tour on a short notice and didn't expect it to be so good. Elena treated us like royalty and being in Peterhof doubled the feeling :)))
Elena, thank you so much for such an amazing experience.
