Peterhof | Saint Petersburg, Russia

Our tour was limited to the Lower Park, which is the extensive parkland on the other side of the Palace . . . all the way to the Gulf of Finland.  The Lower Park includes the Orangery Garden; the Hermitage Pavilion in the western section of the Lower Park; the Marly Palace (also located in the western portion of the park); and our group’s initial destination, the Monplaisir complex in the eastern portion of the park, which includes a collection of gardens, fountains, and decorative sculptures around The Palace of Monplaisir.

All walking paths in this part of the Park are designed to lead to the dramatic central and most prominent feature on the grounds of Peterhof, as shown on the next page.
