Park And Gardens of Peterhof, Peterhof

4.8
#2 of 110 in Parks in St. Petersburg
Reflecting nearly two centuries of European landscape design, Park And Gardens of Peterhof represents a wonderland of luxurious palaces, marble statuaries, and playful fountains set among lush greenery. Aptly nicknamed "Russian Versailles," this World Heritage-listed parkland consists of the upper park and, the much more spectacular, lower park, dotted with ornately decorated fountains and cascades. During the summer season, you can witness the launching of the Great Cascade, the famous set of 64 fountains. To cover a larger area of the gardens, rent a golf cart.
