The Peterhof tour
The possibility of traveling by hydrofoil (meteor) will depend on weather conditions.
The fountains are open from April 27 to October 13.
Founded in 1705 by Peter the Great, Peterhof is considered to be the Northern Versailles. Peterhof’s Park located on the Gulf of Finland covers over 110 hectares and has more than 150 fountains that work without a pump by means of gravitational force only. During your walk in the park, you’ll see the great waterfall 'Samson’ that has the highest stream of water, trick-fountains and unforgettable panoramic views of the Baltic Sea from the terrace of Monplaisir. We recommend you to come to Peterhof on a hydrofoil so that you will cross the Neva river and the Gulf of Finland and get a chance to admire the new districts of the city.
During the season of fountains, we do not recommend visiting Peterhof Palace due to the large number of tourists and the lack of possibility to enter in quick time even when accompanied by the guide, a long wait might only kill the impression from your visit. Nevertheless, in case that does not bother you, we’re leaving the possibility open for you to book the palace tour.
We also advise you to visit the Grand Peterhof Palace during other seasons. The Palace built in 1715 is a fine example of flamboyant Baroque style. Its main staircase and numerous halls will surprise you with refined decor and large numbers of gilded items. In the winter you can also enjoy a serene, frozen sea view.
