One perceives Peterhof to be as beautiful and exquisite as French Versailles. From our point of view, Peterhof’s picturesque view excels one of Versailles considerably.
The Peterhof Grand Palace is considered to be the highlight element of Peter the Great’s “Russian Versailles”. In spite of the fact that palace interiors were almost completely renovated after the WW II, they look even more glorious and opulent than exteriors.
Then you will explore magnificent Lower Gardens with a great number of fountains, where you will have a chance to behold the fountain opening ceremony.
You may have a quick lunch at a park café if you are hungry, or proceed walking along the area with your guide.
At 1 pm you are transferred back to the city. Around 2 pm return back to your hotel.
Note that fountains are not running in winter season until Late April. (exact date to be confirmed)
