Peterhof State Museum Preserve, Peterhof
(4.6/5 based on 1,600+ reviews on the web)
Enter the world of Russian emperors and empresses and surround yourself with opulence and grandeur that are hard to match at Peterhof State Museum Preserve. Now a museum, the imperial palace complex was originally built by Peter the Great at the beginning of the 18th century, and every subsequent ruler added a personal touch to its splendor. Many parts of the complex function as separate museums of different time periods and various aspects of life at the imperial court. From gardens and fountains, to bathhouses and churches--and, of course, a selection of palaces--you can admire the architecture, ornaments, and works of art every step of the way. You can purchase tickets online, and you can plan your visit by only buying tickets for the areas of the palace you intend to see. Put Peterhof State Museum Preserve at the forefront of your travel plans using our Peterhof itinerary builder.
