Your guide will meet you in the lobby of your hotel and you will head to one of the most luxurious parks of the world – the Lower Park of Peterhof, the summer residence of the Russian emperors. On your way to this amazing place, take a short metro ride to see the most beautiful subway stations. Later, walking in the park of Peterhof, you will be entertained with statues, small palaces, pavilions, and hidden Joke Fountains. Discover the astonishing range and diversity of fountains, from further monumental ensembles like the Chess Cascade to the ever-popular Joke Fountains, including one which sprays unwary passers-by who step on a particular paving stone. Afterward, you will go to another summer residence of the Russian Tsars, Tsarskoye Selo (modern Pushkin). You will dive into the atmosphere of the 18th century, walking the strict lines of the French garden and wondering through the Golden Enfilade of Catherine's Palace. During the guided excursion, you will see the eighth wonder of the world, the Amber Room. This unique interior will attract thousands of tourists every year and leave all of them speechless, deserving its informal name as the eighth wonder of the world. You will also marvel at a walk in Catherine's Park, which covers 107 hectares of land and serves as a perfect place to enjoy on a fine summer day far away from the busy streets of St. Petersburg.
