Peterhof (Palace and Park)
Peterhof is located 40 kilometers to the West of St. Petersburg on the southern shore of the Gulf of Finland. In contrast to the Catherine’s Palace in Tsarskoye Selo, the Grand palace in Peterhof looks more modest, because it was the first work of the architect Francesco Bartolomeo Rastrelli to remodel an old Palace of Peter the Great into sumptuous baroque by the order of his daughter Empress Elizabeth.
The main attraction here is not the Grand Palace, but the Park. Due to the large number of Fountains, Peterhof is rightly called the Northern Versailles. The Samson Grand Cascade has more than 150 jets of water. Its spectacular view, with several dozen gilded statues, impresses all visitors. Totally there are 154 fountains and cascades in the Parks of Peterhof. On this tour we visit the Palace and the Park.
