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.

Where to stay

Home to the majestic imperial palaces, the town of Peterhof just outside St. Petersburg is one of Russia's most popular tourist destinations. While you can use St. Petersburg as a base and visit the palaces from there, choosing accommodation in Peterhof not only saves you travel time, but also lets you stay in a wonderfully scenic area. Many of the hotels and guesthouses here preserve traditional and rustic styles, ranging from cozy wooden cabins to lavish historical buildings. It's also possible to find self-catering accommodation in the area, as well as camping sites.
