    For those of you, whose main interest in Peterhof is the beauty of its magnificent gardens and fountains, you’ll find this to be the perfect tour as they will be the sole focus of this outing.


    Peterhof, the town of palaces, fountains and parks, was built by Peter the Great to rival Versailles and a great part of the work was focused on the lavish gardens. The estate construction spanned two centuries and upon its completion it encompassed seven parks and more than 20 smaller palaces and pavilions. Peter himself designed the layout of the 300 acre park and spectacular fountains, 144 in total, all operating without the use of pumps by a combination of naturally generated water pressure and magic.

Samson, constructed in 1734-1735 and the main attraction of Peterhof, is located at the base of the Great Cascade. A hydrofoil will arrive at the pier located in the Low Park to whisk you back to the city while you have the great opportunity so see the city from the perspective of the Gulf of Finland.
