Then you will take a journey through the Lower Park, see the “Chessboard Hill” Cascade, and visit one of the most “dangerous” places in the park - “the Water Road”, “the Oak” and “Umbrella” trick fountains. You will walk through the beautiful “Monplaisir” Garden and admire a panoramic view of the Gulf of Finland and St. Petersburg. You will learn the history of the "Adam" and "Eve" fountains. If you pass between them, you will get a breathtaking view of the Grand Cascade and the Grand Peterhof Palace.

You will find the most unusual monument to Peter the Great with a small child in his arms and learn its history. The tour will end at the most impressive and large-scale structure of Peterhof, that is the Grand Cascade and the “Samson” fountain. They will undoubtedly surprise you with their grandeur. During the walk, you will not only enjoy the incredible beauty of the park complex but also get some information about its complicated history and learn who and how created the masterpieces. PLEASE NOTE that the fountains do not work during the winter season. The park is open from 9 am to 6 pm.
