Peter The Great’s Grand Palace Tour
On this tour you will visit Peterhof, the magnificent residence of Peter the Great, which lies in the flat, forested countryside outside of St. Petersburg. It features a commanding view of the sea down a Marine Canal that allowed the tsars to sail between Peterhof and the Gulf of Finland.
Inside the main palace, you will see a wealth of spectacular sights, such as the intricately gold-gilded main staircase, the opulent Throne Room adorned with royal portraits, a fabulous exhibit of Russian porcelain, the royal bed-chamber, furnished with a huge Turkish sofa from Catherine the Great, and Peter’s oak study, which has survived unaltered from the original design. Lavish period furniture, chandeliers, and paintings are throughout the residence. Following your interior tour of the palace, a guide will escort you through the gorgeous Peterhof Gardens, which features both French and English influences, and is punctuated with ornamental ponds and cascading fountains.
