Petergoff - park and Summer Palace, 5 hours
Peterhof is a jewel of the Russian art, a town of parks, palaces and fountains. The Upper and the Lower Parks are the masterpieces of art of gardening numbering over 170 fountains, 5 monumental cascades. The Grand Cascade, which goes downhill from the palace towards the Baltic Sea, is one of the largest fountain ensembles in the world. Grand Palace was the official summer residence of the Russian Emperors and Empresses from the time of Peter I and to the early 20th century. During the reign of Elizabeth Petrovna the palace was reconstructed by Bartolomeo Francesco Rastrelli, the unsurpassed master of the Baroque style in architecture. Its beautiful interior underlines the luxury and the idea of the imperial power.
