Trip Planner: Europe / Russia / Northwestern District / St. Petersburg / Petrodvortsovy District / Peterhof / Peterhof State Museum Preserve
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.

Wonderful park! It's breathtaking! It is better to go, if possible, in sunny weather-everything shines and look even prettier! Unfortunately, the museums did not hit-very large queues.

Very beautiful and unforgettable! A decent historical museum reserve! Worth a look and visit more than once. As well as a very beautiful view of the Gulf.
