Best part of Peterhof
Apr 2021
While lavish palaces like Peterhof you can see in many places worldwide and they look pretty much the same, gardens of this complex put Peterhof above others.
The area of Peterhof parks and gardens is huge. It stretches all the way to Finnish bay - the Lower gardens, and behind the Palace towards the road - the Upper gardens.
More interesting and nicer are the lower gardens with its prime attraction - the Cascade fountains. Beside that, there're several more smaller fountains spread around.
The gardens are landscaped after Versailles', which Peter the Great frequented and wanted the same at his place.

I've never been to a better looking gardens.Well, maybe I have, but this place is amazing in design, architecture and details. A must visit in St. Petersburg area (we came here with a shore excursion).

Too bad the palace was closed...

Beautiful garden and fountains.
Too bad the palace and some fountains were closed. Best to access by hydrofoils departing near the Hermitage.

Grand Cascade - view from the top
Jul 2019
Grand Cascade fountains are a must see if you are in St Petersburg. Peter the
Great was heavily influenced by French style and a trip to Versailles from which he clearly drew inspiration. There are some similarities with Villa D'Este (Rome) too.

A massive reconstruction took place after demolition during WW2 and the fountains are amazing. I am glad I went.

There are some lovely fountains and views to be seen through the Park but not an awful lot in the way of flowers.

Highly Recommended

Average apart from the fountains
Jun 2019
There are very extensive gardens at Peterhof that are usually not included in guided tours because of time restrictions. Since we were on a private tour with plenty of time, we had an extended walk around the gardens after visiting the palace (reviewed separately) but I must say that apart from the main fountains and the gardens immediately adjacent to these, the remainder were fairly average. Some small fountains, classic statuary, topiary hedges, etc but nothing that you wouldn't see at dozens of other classical gardens.
So definitely see the fountains but don't worry if you don't see the rest of the gardens (only 2.5 stars without the fountains).

An amazing park, fantastic fountains
Jul 2019
Beautiful place. The palace and garden founded by Tsar Peter I. The palace served as an imperial residence until the October Revolution. In 1918 it was proclaimed as the museum. During World War II, Peterhof was occupied by the Nazis in 1941–1944. Earlier, the Soviet authorities evacuated a lot of objects and statues from this palace and in that way saved them from destruction. The palace was completely destroyed during the war by bombing and fighting. After the war, the reconstruction of the Peterhof palace began. Interesting place, a beautiful park, extensive and charming. The fountains are impressive, and there are a lot of them. You have to book the whole day for sightseeing. The park is really huge . For lovers of walks. This is a must see place if you are in St Petersburg.

Extensive grounds
Mar 2020
Visited in Winter when fountains (obviously) are preserved from the cold. The grounds were extensive but in a limited visit we were unable to spend enough time. We were still able to find the visit enjoyable

A must visit in Petersburg

About 45 minutes from the main city, a perfect destination to walk with friends, along the side of Baltic Sea. Very beautiful palace and the garden to visit.

This park is so grand. It has more than hundred fountains. We were on a private tour in Summer. It was busy but still very enjoyable walk by the Sea Canal to the Grand Cascade. The most beautiful garden what i have ever seen.
