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.

We took boats from Saint Petersburg to Peterhof to visit the palace. Visiting area around the palace was totally interesting and worth spending at least half a day to go there.

Never seen such a wealth exposed as here. Definitely worth a visit and don’t forget to visit the adjacent church which is, if possible, even more astonishing.

Peterhof is very similar to Versailles with its hall of mirrors, wonderful gilded statues and gardens. The fountains which I believe are a sight to be seen are switched off in winter and the ornate gilded statues get covered with boxes for protection, though they...More

Peterhof Palace and gardens was another beautiful stop along the way in St. Petersburg. Located a little drive from the city proper, the palace and grounds were modeled after Versailles, near Paris. We enjoyed a tour of the Palace, and even though we were one...More
