Highlights / General details
Modern Petrodvorets, former Petergof, is sometimes compared to Versailles. Being younger, the Petergof surpasses the French palace grounds in quantity of water, architectural variations and fountain engineering technologies.
Petrodvorets is located 29 km far from St. Petersburg. The boat trip takes about 30 minutes from St. Petersburg’s center.
The first palace was established in 1714 by order of Peter the Great who made the first drawings and designs. In 1723, the opening ceremony took place. The second phase of construction was carried out in 1730s. During WWII, Petergof was occupied and badly damaged by the Nazis. With the help of thousands of volunteers it was opened in June of 1945.
