Peterhof was my favourite part of my trip to St Petersburg. There is a grand palace surrounded by the most magnificent gardens I have ever seen. There are over 140 waterfalls and fountains in the gardens, with each of them different so exploring them all is very good fun. There are always people in the fountains cooling off in the water or playing around. This is not strictly allowed, but it is all in good fun.

If you get sick of the gardens and fountains, you can explore the palace as some rooms are open for visitors. Also, there is a beach directly in front of Peterhof, so a whole day could be spent there relaxing and having fun. Everyone can have a great day at Peterhof, and you get the most amazing postcard-like photos from there.
