The beauty of Peterhofrivals the one of French Versailles and in our opinion far exceeds it.
The Grand Palace at Peterhof was designed to be the centrepiece of Peter the Great's "Russian Versailles".
Inside, the Grand Palace is considerably more lavish, and the fact that the interiors had to be almost entirely reconstructed after World War Two does nothing to distract from their grandeur.
After the palace tour you will proceed to explore amazing Lower Gardens with numerous fountains, and if you are lucky, you will witness the ceremony of turning the fountains on.
If you are hungry, you are welcome to enjoy a quick lunch at one of the park cafes, or just keep exploring with your guide.
