Description

The Peterhof Castle is the summer residence of the Russian tsars and is located about 30km west of St. Petersburg. It is one of the Seven Wonders of Russia and is also known as the Versailles of Russia.

With its elegant parks and impressive fountains, the magnificent Great Palace is one of the most beautiful baroque buildings in the world.

To admire the fountains and cascades is a very special highlight, the amazing thing is that they work completely without pumps. It is not without reason that Peterhof is considered the fountain capital of Russia.

The water supply is based on a grandiose system developed in the 18th century by Tsar Peter the Great and a team of specialists. The underground water sources and the natural slope of the terrain are used in such a way that the fountains are continuously supplied with water. The impressive cascade of Peterhof is a fabulous building and one of the most spectacular water games in the world.

Especially in summer, Peterhof is a popular tourist attraction, but also a popular destination for Russians.

Among other suburbs of St. Petersburg, Peterhof is on the UNESCO World Heritage List and is definitely worth a visit.
