The world-famous palace, fountain and park ensemble of Peterhof, is an outstanding landmark of Russian artistic culture from the 18-19th Centuries. Founded in the very beginning of the eighteenth Century by Emperor Peter the Great, not far from his new northern capital St.Petersburg, Peterhof was intended to become the most splendid official royal summer residence. Credit for its creation should go to a great number of eminent architects, artists, and anonymous folk craftsmen. Its wonderful parks, 176 fountains of various forms and styles,and four cascades, majestic palaces, numerous gilded statues of ancient gods and heroes, remarkable collections of sculptures, paintings and works of the minor arts make Peterhof a veritable gem of artunique in the world and often called "Capital of Fountains”. After 1917 the Peterhof ensemble was taken into state custody and turned into an architecture and art museum. Nowadays, due to the unforgettable beauty of its fountains, parks and palaces, Peterhof has become the most attractive suburban royal park and palace ensemble in the northern Russian capital, for numerous Russian and foreign visitors

At noon we will have lunch at a local restaurant after which we return to St.Petersburg by Hydrofoil before we visit The State Hermitage Museum, which occupies six magnificent buildings situated along the embankment of the River Neva, right in the heart of St. Petersburg.

This ensemble, formed in the 18thand 19thCenturies, isextended by the eastern wing of the General Staff building, the Menshikov Palace and the recently constructed Repository. Put together throughout two centuries and a half, the Hermitage collection of works of art (over 3,000,000 items) presents the development of world culture and art from the Stone Age to the 20th Century.
