Peterhof visit

by gizzer1

Cruise ship stopping at St Petersburg. Want to see the Peterhof. Lots of info as to transportation. Couldn't find cost of entry to place; also had heard each building requires admission.
Can tickets be bought in advance online? Or is it just as easy to go there (or in St Petersburg) and just buy a ticket?

Also told that to go on my own, I need a Russian visa; is this true? But if I'm on a tour, a visa is not needed since I'm on a cruise.

Appreciate any help to questions.

We took a Moscow to StP river cruise last November and definately did need a visa. We are U.S. citizens and left from Newark airport and were met in Moscow by our tour director. Our tour included entrance to the major tourist sites (including Peterhof)in every city we visited so I can't give you prices or admission info. But again, a visa is a must. If you haven't made your final travel arrangements yet, allow plenty of time to get your visa.
Have a great trip!! Russia is really a great place to visit.

thanks all for your help.
Think buying the cruise ship tours is the best option for me; less hassle and such.

It is real simple. If you wish to stay with tour group, you do not need your own regular visa, but you need to stay with tour group. If you wish to go exploring on your own, seperate and apart from the tour group, you will need to get your own Russian visa.

Saint Petersburg Tip

by Andrew_Vodo

The centre of Saint Petersburg seen from the top of Isakievsky Cathedral. You can see the Admiralty buiding (in the centre), Zimniy Palace (green building on the right) and Peter and Paul Fortress (just behind the russian flag)

Wedding

by Leipzig

We saw this wedding when we were lunching at the Rostral Columns. The couple sat down in front of the triton figure for a wedding photo. Then they went to a nearby park where the couple had to pose for the relatives taking photos. The poor bride - it was raining and the beautiful white dress turned grey after a while, got soaked and heavy.

St. Nicholas's Cathedral

by Canadienne

Although not out of the city, St. Nicholas's is a bit further from the main sights in St. Petersburg. More importantly, it doesn't get much print in guidebooks, but that's a true oversight.

St. Nicholas is the patron saint and protector of sailors ~ Russian ships have always carried icons of St. Nicholas and during storms, crews would bring him on deck and pray for rescue.

Since the area surrounding the church was originally settled by sailors and employees of the Admiralty, it was only fitting that it was named after this saint. It was built in 1753-62 and is an extremely pretty blue and white Baroque building with a matching belltower (be sure to look around. . .there's even a children's playground on the lot, decorated in the same colours).

New Holland

by Canadienne

In 1719, a canal (the Kryukov) was built between the Moika and the Neva, creating a triangular island that would come to be known as New Holland. Today, the island is a military zone and is not open to the public. Nevertheless, it is incredibly atmospheric and picturesque ~ completely overgrown with vegetation.

There is a great arch facing the Moika (you can get fantastic views by taking a boat ride along the city’s canals ~ most of them should pass by this area).
