Full description
Your guide will pick you up at your place of stay and you will take a scenic drive to Peterhof. As you arrive to Peterhof, start your tour in the French style Upper Gardens, pass by the Grand Palace constructed by the famous Italian architect Francesco Rastrelli and continue to Lower Park. Walk towards the Grand Cascade marveling at one of the most extensive waterworks of the Baroque period. Admire the golden statue of Samson that represents Russia’s victory over Sweden in the Great Northern War.

Continue your tour by entering the Grand Palace, arguably the most famous residence of the Russian Czars. See rooms which date back to the time of Peter the Great and marvel at the shining golden Baroque halls and rooms from the Classical period. Walk along colorful flowerbeds to the main square of the garden and see the famous Roman and Chessboard Hill fountain.  

Then, continue to the fountains of “Adam” and “Eve” that were originally modeled after the statues of “Adam and Eve” in the Doge’s Palace in Venice.  Be careful as you walk by several “trick fountains” that were absolute favorites of Peter the Great, to prank his numerous guests. Continue strolling around the numerous cascades and fountains as your tour slowly ends. After an incredible day take the Hydrofoil boat to enjoy the spectacular views of the Neva River as you travel back to St.Petersburg.
