The Peterhof complex consists of a set of palaces and gardens. It was not only declared UNESCO World Heritage site, but also bears the proud title of one of the ‘Russia’s Seven Wonders’. The shinning water of more than a hundred fountains of various forms and styles running all the time, canals, terraces, gilded statues, mansions, flowers – all these makes the visit to the park unforgettable.
2. Metro tour
The subway in Soviet times was considered to be the Palace of the People and was to be decorated as such. That is why each one of the stations in the Saint Petersburg Metro is a unique and stunning work of art – decorated with marble, granite, high reliefs, huge lamps and each one has its own style.
The first line of the metro in Saint Petersburg was constructed in 1955. Today underground transit system of the city became one of the tourist attractions, because of its exquisite decoration and for its depth, being one of the deepest in the World. During the tour, you will see the most beautiful stations and you learn about the history of the subway.
