Peterhof is composed by an amazing palace with beautiful gardens and stunning fountains.
It is a breathtaking experience to walk through its gardens and to enjoy the fountains. The palace is also woth visiting.
Nothing approaches Peterhof outside Versailles (in France).

The gardens and the interior of the Palace were absolutely 'out of this world'. It was utterly breath-taking. I cannot put into words how I felt about this visit. We saw the fountains start at 11.00 am. Unfortunately I had forgotten my camera, but I am taking away so many memories of this incredible spectacle. There is a lot of walking involved so it would be difficult with those with walking difficulties.

This is possibly the best attraction in St Petersburg.Fantastic water features and the palace tour is the best of all the tours on offer. Quick boat ride for 30 km on the Finish Sea is an ideal way to get to this venue. highly recommended.

An incredible spectacle and a beautiful place to roam despite the crowds. Crowded but this is summer and it is a major attraction.
