2.8
Enter the world of Russian emperors and empresses and surround yourself with opulence and grandeur that are hard to match at Scientific Archives of the State Museum-Reserve "Peterhof" |. 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.

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.

  • Place put it in early childhood. The easiest and more interesting for tourists during the summer, reached by hydrofoil. The park itself is huge so plan to stay here the whole day.

  • Petersburg to visit comes nearly everywhere, as long as you won't regret it. Park entrance fees and admission is separate from the Palace. After you enter the Park, you can purchase tickets to the Palace. Tempted to sell food in the Park expensive and didn't have much flavor will not like to recommend.
