Full description
Discover the luxurious wonders of the royal residence of Orienenbaum, located on the Gulf of Finland. The palace complex, a UNESCO World Listed location, has a rich-history dating back to the early 18th century.

Enjoy a guided tour of the palace complex, which was constructed by Peter the Great’s close friend Alexander Menshikov. Learn about how the palace was originally designed to greet visitors arriving by sea to the new Russian capital. Marvel at the palace's intricate architecture and stunning decoration, which was so unbelievably luxurious it even swept away the Peterhof at the time.
