Board your comfortable coach from your hotel and drive to Peterhof, the most famous royal suburb of St Petersburg. Start your private excursion from the Special Storeroom, amazing historical and architectural monument of 18-19 centuries. Admire the personal things of Russian Tsars, which have been kept by Peterhof's caretakers for a long time. You can see the personal jacket of Peter the Great and imagine how tall he was, see about 800 exponents of precious materials - gold, silver and gems, and admire fabulous royal jewelry, created by Faberge jewellery factory and presented to the Royal Yard.

Next, visit astonishing Grand Fountain Complex. At the center stands Rastrelli's spectacular statue of Samson wrestling the jaws of a lion. Hundreds of fountains, ornamental patterns of parterres, golden statues are real masterpieces that impress everybody who comes there. Have a rest under the ancient trees, feel unforgettable smell of roses and admire amazing gardening art of the best Russian gardeners. Visit the Tsar's lovely amusement park - Joke Fountains, including one which sprays unwary passers-by who step on a particular paving stone. In the afternoon have a traditional Russian lunch in the Park. Taste delicious Vinegret (assortment salad), traditional Russian Shchi (cabbage soup), Pozharskaya Cutlet (meat ball) with rice under mushroom sauce, tea with some sweets.

Later, make your way to the Emperor's Bath House, a special building for bathing of Emperor Family and foreign monarchs, which tells us the history of royal baths.
