Amazing day out of St. Pet
Apr 2021
In order to fully appreciate this complex have an entire day at your disposal. It's one of the best places all of Russia has to offer.
It's located southwest of the Imperial capital and you can reach it by speedboat (summer time only), public bus or taxi. I advise combining the trip with the beautiful Naval Cathedral in Kronstadt (read that review).
Once here there's really lot to do and see - the Summer Palace, magnificent gardens, the Monplesir sea house, outstanding fountains,...etc.

This place is must vist in all Russia. Be prepared for the rain, but it totally worth the visit. The music of the grand cascade is the best part.

The gardens must not be missed.
Sep 2019
We are not great fans of group tours since they have a strict time schedule to follow. We prefer doing a tour at our own pace, which needs lots of advance planning and research, but then you can make your itinerary.
We were a party of four so it made sense to take an uber from our hotel to this Palace. Fortunately we made it well in time to watch the grand cascade, hemmed in as we were by hordes of Chinese tourists. Yet, having arrived early, we managed a vantage point from where we could witness the grand fountains which open at a particular time only once a day. After that we toured the gardens and then the Peterhof State Museum. Frankly the Catherine Palace was more opulent. As we had already seen that, we were a bit disappointed.
The gardens with their walks, the boathouse, the various fountains were however a unique experience and not to be missed.

Fountains and Gardens Fit for a Czar
May 2019
Must see if you are in St. Petersburg. Did not see Palace but the grounds are fantastic. The grand cascade is breath taking. You walk through the men's garden because that is were all the fountains are. I won't spoil any of the trick fountains but they are delightful. The boathouse down by the sea is beautiful in that setting. The main castle is beautiful on outside but we did not have

Review of peterhof
Aug 2019 • Friends
The Grand Palace itself and the Gardens were gorgeous but sadly the experience during the day there was too stressful trying to understand how, when, where and on what conditions you could enter one or the other place. You´d think they would hire at least one person who could provide tourists with information in English, especially when the signs and indications about ticket sales, entering/closing schedules are controversial, but no..

A Crowded Must See In St Petersburg
Aug 2019
This is a must see site in St Petersburg. The gardens are ornate and well maintained. The buildings and fountains are nice to look at. The problem with the site is that it is very crowded in summer.

The palace was so so and I found the gardens and Fountains a better site to see. This is just my personal opinion.

Love the gardens and fountains!

The lines to tour the palace are horrific. However the gardens and satellite building are very interesting and a lot less crowded. We had lunch at the Shtandart buffet which was great, because we could point to what looked good to us:)

Wonderful complex: palace, gardens and fountains
Nov 2018 • Friends
Peterhof State Museum is located in Peterhof Palace and surroundings, where you can see a lot of fountains, a water channel, gardens and views of the sea. It is located in Peterhof, a town near Saint Petersburg. In fact, you can be all day in the full complex to visit all: the inner rooms of the palace are wonderful like main staircase, Imperial rooms or Official rooms. The fountains located in front of the main entrance of the palace are fantastic (pitifully, we came here in November-2018 and they were closed), and the gardens has a lot of walks, where you can walk, run, play with children, relax and views very beautiful views of the sea, the palace or the surroundings (pitifully, in November (almost) all buildings in the garden also are closed). An incredible visit, where you can see the opulence of tzars. A top!
