Peterhof, often called as Russian Versailles or simply Petrodvorets, is a palace of Peter the Great – the Russian Tzar, who wished to break his country into the Europe and who actually succeed.

Its fountain park is confirmed as one of the best in the world. Intrigued? Come and see for yourself – you will be amazed!
Peterhof was built by Russian Tzar Peter The Great to become the Russian Versailles: the question is which one is more regal and opulent. This place is world-famous for its diverse and superb fountains and cascades. The museum-reserve comprises small palaces, the Grand Palace of Peterhof, and the amazing Fountain park where you will feel like spending most of your time. Magnificent fountains of Peterhof is an experience you will never forget.
The magnificence of the Grand Palace and the imaginativeness and intricacy of the Grand Cascade Fountains of Peterhof with all that gilding and lavishness will conquer your heart.

Please book as far in advance as possible.
Even with prepaid tickets, during high season one may expect a line at the entrance to the Palace due to an increasing number of tourists and tour groups that visit it.
For many dates during high season, we are able to secure an early entry, before official opening hours, thus reducing time spent on lining at the entrance (though one should not expect a completely free access to the Palace even with this option).
If interested in this option, please book "Early admission to the Palace – Tour start time at 8-30 am" optional extra when with booking the tour.
For guests with children under 6 y.o.: if there are 2 or 5 adults and 1 or more children in your party it will require a car upgrade to allow comfortable seating for everyone (and child security seats) for which we will bill you separately.
For students & student groups: if you're booking for a student group, please include a "single" ticket for one participant; other participants will need a "student" ticket. Alternatively, consider getting a "group" ticket for everyone, if it offers a cheaper price. If your are a solo-travelling student, please book with a "single" ticket.
