World-famous Peterhof’s fountains were put into operation on April, 23. Official opening will be held on May, 21, but guests can visit the museum right now with all amenities and museums available. Please, note, that this year entrance prices will be higher than last year.
The fountains started to work last weekend. In practice, this means that the museum complex which consists of several museums and parks is open to visitors in full scale.
This season entry tickets are more expensive than in two previous years. For newcomers, it’s important to note that there are two kinds of tickets:
to enter parks – which is often being used by those who are not interested in visiting museums;
to enter museums. Visiting museums means that you also pay for entering parks.
The most popular among the parks is the Lower Garden which is quite enough for enjoying Peterhof. Here the Great Cascade of fountains and the Great Peterhof palace are located. The Great Cascade features 64 fountains and 256 bronze statues.
