To understand better the extent of this museum we can comment that it would take a visitor almost 15 years to appreciate all the treasures the museum houses.

Then you will take a boat or car/mini van to Peterhof - the former summer residence of Peter the Great where you will admire the picturesque Lower Gardens (Park) with spectacular fountains, the Grand Palace and numerous smaller Palaces and pavilions representing "Russian Versailles" (such as Monplaisir Palace, Marly Palace, Hermitage Pavilion, Catherine’s Block, etc.) There are two different ways of getting to Peterhof from St. Petersburg.
