Once a formal garden built for Peter the Great, this popular park still has more than 80 of the original marble statues and sculptures and houses Peter's Summer Palace, a simply designed two-story building that now displays many of the ruler's own artifacts.

A few miles from Saint Petersburg is the Palace and Gardens of Peter The Great on the Baltic. It's a combination of Palaces and gardens seen all over the major European Cities like Vienna, Paris or elsewhere. The Gardens and fountains remind me of the...More

Not to be missed. Fountains breathtaking. Inside opulent. Use Alla tours to get a complete historical perspective.

The architecture of the palace is beautiful but the interior is similar to the other palace in St. Petersburg. Just go see the fountains and the park.

Spectacular fountains and water systems. Lovely walks and views. Such a treat to be able to walk to the sea even on a windy day.
