Your professional guide will meet you at the metro station “Admiralteyskaya”. Start your tour with a scenic drive across the old town and the outskirts of St Petersburg, as you prepare to see the splendid Peterhof Fountain park and visit one the small palaces. Your guide will help you to uncover the world of high society that was available for a very small circle of people. Hear real-life stories about Russian tsars and tsarinas, their fashion tastes, ceremonial of the court, variety of food traditions and many more. Even though the Royal family lost the power more than a century ago it’s hardly possible to estimate all the wealth even today when you pass lavishly decorated pavilions and palaces.
But Peterhof has more to offer than that! Peterhof residence is considered to be one of the largest in Europe and it's often referred to as Russian Versailles, a famous royal residence in France. And though you can find a resemblance between them, the Lower garden surprises you with a great variety of ornate fountains that you see on the way to the quay providing fantastic views of the Baltic Sea and the city center. The garden tour includes the so-called “trick” fountains, the Roman Fountains and the Chess Cascade, the Orangery, wooden aviaries and the pompous Monplaisir Palace right at the seafront. Your tour will finish with a trip on a comfortable vehicle back to the original meeting point.
