PETERHOF PALACE & PARK

Shore Tours in St Petersburg

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.

Is this tour right for you?

IS THIS TOUR RIGHT FOR YOU? This tour is not suitable for guests with limited mobility or wheelchair users. There are no lifts in the Grand Palace of Peterhof. It should be noted that slippers/over shoes have to be worn over outdoor shoes to protect the flooring of the Grand Palace – extra care should be taken as this will make the floor surface more slippery. There is usually a charge to use toilet facilities – at the time of printing this was 50 cents ($/€). Please note that it cannot be guaranteed that the fountains will be functioning during your visit, and some rooms may not always be accessible. Photography is prohibited in the palace.
