Peterhof is located on the southern coast of the Gulf of Finland, 29 kilometers away from St. Petersburg. Here a small house for Peter the Great was built in 1705, where the Tsar could take a rest on his way from Kronshtadt to St. Petersburg. In 1714 the Emperor decided to turn Peterhof into his main out-of-town residence. Here, in the XVIII and the XIX centuries, a grandiose complex of eleven parks, dozens of buildings, and pavilions with more than 200 fountains and numerous sculptures were formed in the area of over 1000 hectares.


The Grand Palace, built for Empress Elizabeth in the Baroque style, is a composition center of the Ensemble.

The Grand Fountain Cascade, which is unique both technically and artistically, forms a decorative pedestal for the Palace. The Grand Cascade, embellished with numerous fountains, gilded statues, bas-relief and vases, is crowned with the sculpture group known as «Samson Tears Open the Lion’s Jaws», which is dedicated to the victory of Russia in the Northern War.

The Grand Palace is open from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., days off – Monday and last Tuesday of each month.
