Tour To Peterhof

The Peterhof is a group of palaces, gardens and fountains next to St. Petersburg. It is usually called Russian Versailles because of its beauty and complexity. The whole ensemble is listed as UNESCO World Heritage Site.

For the first time Peterhof was mentioned in 1705 as a pier for transfer to Kotlin island. Building of royal residence for Peter the Great began in 1710, and four years later in 1714 the Grand Palace was opened. In 18-19th centuries a pier developed into incredibly spacious complex.

After the Revolution palaces became museums, but during World War II Peterhof was seriously damaged. Some statues and decorations were saved, but shelling destroyed many buildings. After the war the complex was recovered, including Samson fountain. This fountain crowns the Grand Cascade of fountains. It is dedicated to the victory over Sweden, and it shows Samson severs lion's jaws with 20 meters high fountain from lion's mouth.

During the tour you will see a beautiful park with over 100 fountains, sculptures and beautiful buildings.
