The most amazing extensive gardens and fountains that I have ever seen.!! These gardens surpass Versailles hands down. Not to be missed on a tour of St Petersburg.

Worth the trip - a fabulous way to spend the day. Get there early. Phenomenal history, architecture, art and dozens of cascading fountains. You'll be 'snap-happy'. :)

We visited with TJ Travel guide- Alexia( highly recommend) the Palace and the gardens. Very nice landscape, a lot of creativity, originality and engineering: several small palaces, gardens, cascade, sea channel with baroque waterworks, artificial grotto, statues... The Grand Palace is a historic royal building...More
