Peterhof is frustrating, but fun. There are many seperate buildings, and for each one you have to buy a seperate ticket. It's frustrating because each building costs about $6 ($3.50 for students) to enter but the Russian price is about 5 to 10 cents. Sometimes my friends asked Russians to buy our tickets (which they always obliged to) and in exchange we bought them their tickets. Maybe not really kosher, but we saved a lot of money. Everything is very beautiful. Take a nap on the lawn, there's lots of space.
It's a full day trip, so get an early start.
