Located outside of St. Petersburg, Peterhof is on the list of must-see places during your summer visit to St. Petersburg. Peter the Great planned Peterhof as a royal residence. “I’m going to outshine Versailles,” declared Peter and so he did. Peterhof is usually called the “Russian Versaille” because of its beauty and complexity.

The Lower Park is the most famous part of the entire complex and is decorated with many handsome palaces and sculptures. The fountains will amaze you! The most famous ensemble of fountains, the Grand Cascade, consists of 64 different fountains and numerous bronze statues, bas-reliefs, and other decorations. The range and diversity of fountains are astounding – from the monumental ensembles like the Chess Cascade and the Pyramid Fountain to the ever-popular Joke Fountains. Watch your way! If you step on a particular paving stone you will be sprayed! Peterhof is recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is included in the state register of the most valuable cultural objects of the Russian Federation and proudly bears the title of one of the “Seven Wonders of Russia.”
