We only toured the gardens, and then probably only a portion. The fountains were magnificent. We toured the end of August and it wasn't terribly crowded the day we were there.

This was an incredibly beautiful place. The Russian nobility spent money way too lavishly and ultimately they paid with their lives. I am glad they did build places like this because it is fun to see. I especially enjoyed the fountains. Be prepared to walk...More

2500 rubles per person (ferry from st petersburg, plus "park" entrance which they force you to pay at the pier because you are literally trapped there unless u take the next ferry back right away.) Biggest waste of time and money in our whole trip!!

The history of the Romanov's and this place really impact me, I have traveled around the world but the gold and the beauty of this place is something you will never forget. I highly recommend this visit.

Consider just paying the entrance fee and then enjoy the sights for free. Maybe considering a tour of the Grotto and the Hermitage if you like mechanical things.

This is all part of the Peterhof visit out. See our other reviews about the Palace and Gardens. Nice pictures.

After wondering around the gardens, this is a bit of let down, so do not bother if time is short. The fountains and the gardens are beautiful.

You can comfortably skip this place as there is nothing special to see. The true attraction is Peterhof are the gardens and fountains so unless you have a tour guide and pre-arranged program, no need to spend time here
