Ich habe meine Transfers vom Flughafen zum Hafen in St.Petersburg und vom Hafen zum Airport in Moskau über Natalia Zolotareva gebucht. Der Kontakt war hervorragend. Die Transfers wurden pünktlich und zu voller Zufriedenheit durchgeführt. Vielen Dank an Natalia und Ihre Fahrer.

Peterhofprint version

Peterhof, like St Petersburg itself, is an amazing symbol of Peter's desire to make Russia a sophisticated European power. This is a Russian baroque garden, inspired by Versailles and designed by a pupil of Le Notre (Jean-Baptiste Le Blond). Peter the Great admired Versailles. For his own summer palace he chose a site with a good water supply. It stands on a natural terrace overlooking the Baltic. A fabulous marble cascade flows from the palace towards the sea, along the Samson canal. It symbolises Russia's conquest of the Baltic coast in the Great Northern War. The cascade is lined with gilded statues and leads to a basin with a gilded statue of Samson. On the south front of the palace there is a large parterre, alleys, grass plots, basins, fountains and statues. This garden contains 173 fountains. They line the canal and ornament the woods.

There are two different ways of getting to Peterhof from St. Petersburg. The easiest is by car. The most exciting is by boat. However, this option is available only between 09.05 and 30.09. Please contact us if you require more information. Please note, there is no transfer to the boat station included in the price list. Please arrange this separately or ask the guide to do it for you or contact us.
