What to expect

Explore imperial residences on this day tour of Catherine Palace and the Peterhof gardens. If you only have a limited amount of time in St. Petersburg, this tour is a great option. See two of the most popular Imperial suburban residences of Saint Petersburg in one day.

Visit Catherine Palace in the morning and let your guide tell you fascinating facts about it. Built by the finest architects and mostly known for the renown Amber room and the Golden Enfilade of state rooms, the Catherine Palace was the summer residence of Russian tsars. Learn why the place is a definite must-see attraction of Saint Petersburg.

Your day tour includes also an afternoon visit to Peterhof Lower gardens that are filled with fountain jets. You will have a chance to get familiar with the intricate and technologically advanced fountain system. The high quality piping system still remains intact in many sections. Unfortunately it was badly damaged by the mines of the WWII.
