Our Main sights and Peterhof tour includes the most famous sights of the historical city centre and fascinating Peterhof Fountains and Gardens.
After our guide and driver will meet you at the sea port or hotel you will have a rich city tour with multiple photo-stops and inside visit to the most famous attractions in the down town: Peter and Paul Fortress
– is where Saint-Petersburg began. Peter and Paul Cathedral is a famous burial vault where you can see the tombs of Romanovs – the former Russian emperors.
On the tour you will also visit the Church on Spilled Blood (it is worth going inside to marvel at the stunning bejeweled interior) and not less famous St.-Isaac’s cathedral.
After city tour have a break for lunch in one of the local restaurants.
After lunch you’ll leave the city to the countryside to see one of the most spectacular gardens – the fountain park of Peterhof – Russia’s answer to Versailles.
