Please note:

  • Please note that the hydrofoil to Peterhof is not operating starting from October until the end of April, extra cost of this option is 15 USD per person.
  • During the winter season park is covered with snow and all fountains are kept under wooden boxes for their preservation. So in the off-season you will have more time to explore the palace.
  • If you travel with children under 7 years old, you don’t have to pay for them – the tour for them will be free of charge Children/Students over 7 years old receive discount of 50 USD for the tour. Students must have a valid ISIC card, otherwise the discount is not available.
