  • Very beautiful park! Attend better in summer, weather permitting. Groomed lanes, sufficient number of benches, fountains, lots of marble sculptures (copies of earlier ordered by Peter the great). There is a pond with birds, which you can watch for hours. And of course the pond with historic gazebo, Peter's House and Cafe, serving and today (near her toilets, paid). When we hiked two days in a row, Park performed artist-puppeteer, attracted kids to speak, very cute)))

  • If you look at the reviews written here all summer in the palace garden full of petergof mistake and wrote, the fact that he is not ereumitajyu on the East side of summer garden for the summer garden of Pyotr. Compared to that, but the scale of the park or garden is quite common, the summer palace of petergof gardens should not be compared to the scale itself.
