Russian Versailles
Established by Peter the Great, the modestly sized city of Peterhof offers a lot when it comes to major tourist attractions. Often described as the "Russian Versailles," the town boasts a sprawling series of 18th-century imperial gardens and palaces, recognized as a World Heritage Site. Stretching along the southern shore of the Gulf of Finland, the historical ensemble of buildings represents one of the country's finest examples of imperial architecture. The town suffered massive damage during the German bombing raids of World War II. Today, Peterhof offers travelers a chance to learn about tsarist history and experience a tranquil suburban atmosphere just 30 km (18 mi) west of Saint Petersburg. Add Peterhof and other destinations in Russia to your travel plans using our Russia trip planner.
