The Marly Palace, Peterhof

4.7
Created as a private retreat for Peter the Great, The Marly Palace was inspired by the royal hunting lodges the emperor admired while traveling in France. Peter considered this palace-garden complex his "Russian Versailles," creating an intimate sanctuary within the vast grounds for his personal pleasure. He used the palace and the surrounding gardens for only two years before his death, and the quiet retreat eventually became a storage space for his furniture, art, clothing, and official gifts. Today, the thoroughly reconstructed site provides a peek at the days when Peter enjoyed the serenity of his tranquil sanctuary. Check online for visiting hours and tour options. The Marly Palace is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our world travel planner, St. Petersburg Edition.

    Amazing for its simple beauty. This is more than in size wing Palace, but the perfection of the form does not decrease.

    If you look at the bottom of the garden walk petergof red roof's appearance is a fairly rustic building one. In contrast to the summer palace built by Russian Baroque style, built from large scale just so simple form, easy to overlook. Historically, this building is staying, or hang out in petergof nobility throughout the day for a fun meal where the outbuildings are spent, he can only be amazed at the difference of ideas and scale.

    Come down to the lower Park of Le St. hope, can't walk to the left coming out of the little castle, Palace ... If you do not enter a size too small inside, but I just can't tell you what the purpose of the building here, where the luxury of this trail is a unique financial Russia bear. Just had to eat all day restaurant. 2 storey building, downstairs, put on the table their food to, 2-storey d'Or Les using the table enjoyed their food, carry ... Probably not mimic the way of any country in Europe? I would like to.
