Beatuiful park and statues and waterworks. Really worth the trip and time. I suggest to take a public bus to Museum and then take the "rocket boats" back so you get the best of both worlds, and see more things.

Peter the Great had a sense of humour. He likes to trick his guests and get them unexpectedly wet. The gardens are full of fountains but some are covert, in false trees, behind benches waiting for an unexpected visitor to take rest, in the roof...More

Of course another must do in St Petersburg, the scale and size of the grounds and Palace are something that must be seen. The Palace inside is great, but to me nothing awe inspiring compared to some others, but the fountains in particular the great...More

The Peterhof Palace is closed on Monday and the last Tuesday of every month. As the hydrofoil was not operating in November, we took uber near the Church of Our Savior on Spilled Blood to Peterhof Palace and it cost slightly less than 700 roubles....More

Incredible, historic site that rivals Versailles! The amber room contain half a billion dollars in amber and is a sight to behold. The grounds of Peterhof are similarly well-designed with northern flora. Definitely should be on everyone's bucket list

We loved visiting these gardens. The fountain system is amazing. Very beautiful and all run on gravity. Be sure to have a guide to tell you about the trick fountains.
