Enjoy a visit to the palace of Peterhof and view the dazzling fountain display.
Crowning the hill is Peter’s Grand Palace, commanding a magnificent view over the Lower Park and the Gulf beyond. Ascend the main staircase and visit a suite of staterooms - sumptuously appointed, especially the opulent Throne Room used in the past for great receptions and official ceremonies. See Peter’s Oak Study, one of the few rooms to have survived unaltered.
Leaving the Grand Palace you will enjoy a truly breathtaking view of the Grand Cascade, which comprises three waterfalls and a stunning avenue of 64 fountains and 37 gilded statues. A true wonder of engineering, the fountains are fed by underground springs of the Ropsha Hills some 21 kilometres (13 miles) away. A great variety of fountains can be found in the Lower Park – including the Chess Board Hill Cascade, Adam and Eve Fountains, and the Sun Fountain.
