What You'll Do
  • Visit Peterhof, the Russian Versailles, on a tour by private car
  • Explore the Upper Gardens and Lower Park, considered masterpieces of landscape design
  • Tour the Grand Palace and marvel at the interiors representing the styles of different époques
Overview
Take a tour of Peterhof, the summer residence of the Russian tsar, and explore the Lower Park on a day tour by private car from St. Petersburg. Marvel at this masterpiece of landscape design that includes over 150 fountains and 4 monumental cascades.
What to Expect
Peterhof was constructed by Peter the Great as Russia’s answer to Versailles. The tsar was noted for his determination to westernize his country, and the main purpose of this summer residence was to impress foreign guests and to show that Russia was able to compete with Europe in architecture and park design.

On this 5-hour trip from St. Petersburg you’ll tour the grounds and the palace. The Upper Gardens and Lower Park reflect the epitome of European landscape architecture of the period. The estate features more than 150 fountains that differ from Versailles in that the water runs by natural pressure without the use of pumps.

The impressive Grand Palace dominates the park. It was the official summer residence of several Russian tsars, as can be seen by the various styles of the interior.
