Peterhof is one of the greatest Imperial ensembles outside St Petersburg and is definitely “a must see” for any first time visitor of St Petersburg. The palace ensemble is often referred as the "Russian Versailles" but actually it has surpassed Versailles in many respects: it is a real “kingdom of fountains” with four cascades, a variety of unique and "trick" fountains, Grand Peterhof Palace, and 5 other small palaces.

The best time to take a tour to Peterhof is summer since the famous Peterhof fountains operate May through September only.
