Once a formal garden built for Peter the Great, this popular park still has more than 80 of the original marble statues and sculptures and houses Peter's Summer Palace, a simply designed two-story building that now displays many of the ruler's own artifacts.

DO NOT miss this palace. The grounds themselves are a park and very beautiful. So many different fountains, etc. The inside of the palace is truly amazing. Well worth the visit.

Absolutely gorgeous rooms, but the line is huge in summer. Note, that you may buy a ticket with specified time for the entry (noon or around 4 p.m).

I really enjoyed the visit, but there were a few things that kept this from receiving 5 stars. Mostly the insane amount of tourists there. They have to keep people moving through, so there are no photos inside allowed. I get it, but I also...More

You must spend a full day here. It is really majestic and absolutely gorgeous. The palace is well maintained. Make sure you have a guide for your tour. Wear comfortable shoes and enjoy your time being here. Take pics, but admire the beauty.

Take your time as your stroll through the beautiful gardens, sit around the fountains and enjoy the sounds and smells. Such a beautiful palace.

This site is a simple metro then bus ride away from St Petersburg. I visited in January and of course the fountains were switched off but a number of statues were still uncovered, maybe because they were being restored(?). The beauty of the fountains is...More
