About this activity
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Peterhof Express, Admiralty Embankment, 2, Sankt-Peterburg, Ленинградская область, Russia, 190000

[tickets included] ★ TRANSFER FROM ST. PETERSBURG TO PETERHOF on a river boat on hydrofoils 30 minutes or by car 50 minutes ★ [rent included]


Peterhof is located on the shores of the Gulf of Finland – just 30 km from St. Petersburg. You can get there both by land and by water. A trip to Peterhof by water transport is the most spectacular option. The route of the high-speed passenger ship on hydrofoils passes through the central water area of the Neva. This is a great opportunity to see the Hermitage, the Peter and Paul Fortress, the Spit of Vasilyevsky Island, the Birzhevoy and Tuchkov Bridges from the water, and in clear weather also Kronstadt with Strelna.


In case you are difficult to carry the trip by water transport, we have provided the possibility of transfer by car.

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Peterhof Grand Palace, Razvodnaya St., 2, Peterhof, St. Petersburg 198516 Russia

[tickets included] ★ Peterhof is a country imperial residence in the environs of St. Petersburg, founded by Peter I. The unique appearance of the “Russian Versailles” was formed over three centuries – from laying the first stone in 1712 to the present day, when after World War II it had to be literally restored from the ruins.


More than 150 fountains and water cascades adorn the park’s composition. Palaces, pavilions, statues, avenues and flower beds. He harbors so many beauties and treasures that a whole day to meet him will not be enough. We will visit the main attractions of the complex: the Upper Garden, the Great Peterhof Palace, which has long been the center of social life. Here holidays, receptions, balls and masquerades were held, to which up to 3000 guests were invited. Without visiting the Lower Park with its many fountains, the impression of Peterhof will be incomplete. The heart of the sights is the Grand Cascade, in which the most famous fountain in the park is located – “Samson tearing the lion’s mouth”. In total in the lower park: 3 waterfall stairs, 64 fountains, 255 sculptures and bas-reliefs on ancient themes – this is the largest fountain structure in the world and the visiting card of Peterhof.


We will also visit the palace telegraph station, which was built during the reign of Alexander II. It is interesting that everyone could send telegrams from this station. Now the old situation has been recreated here, you can see old telegraph devices.


[not included] ★ TIME FOR REST AND LUNCH During the tour you will have time for rest and lunch. On the shores of the Gulf of Finland there are several cafes and restaurants for every taste. A royal-style Russian restaurant is located near the main entrance to the upper garden.

Duration: 5 hours
