Opening date for fountains in Peterhof

by kismoi

Hi,

I see different answers from different websites, ranging from start to last week of May. Does anybody knoes the exact date or where I can check this?

This matters to me unfortunately because I will be in St Petersburg only on 3rd and 4th May.

Thanks!

Unfortunately the date of opening is 9th, May (according to the recent publications). The official opening of season - 31t, of May.

The date changes alittle every year for the opening of fountains. This year 2008 the fountains will open May 9th. You can check the official Peterhof website to see the date, time and the information about tickets.

Thanks for the answer and the references. It's too late for me to change the dates of my trip. Really wanted to see the fountains in their glory, should have done more research beforehand. =(

Sorry it does not work for the OP but it is great news for me!

I imagine that it will be very crowded on the 9th due to opening day and Victory day. Would you recommend going instead on the 10th or 11th? Or should I just join the crowds?

Re: Opening date for fountains in Peterhof

It will be a high tickets price for the opening date but sure depend on you. Do you like to be in a crowd and see nothing but people? We like to enjoy the nature, sit down on the banch by every fountain and just look at the water and listen the birds! You can also get some picnic food and just go, any day!
You are welcome!

Travel Tips for Saint Petersburg

Visit Peterhof

by american_tourister

The tour of the palaces surrounding St. Petersburg is well worth the cost and effort. Peterhof (Summer palace of Peter the Great) is just breathtaking. We spent a day touring the palaces with a private driver and guide. The conceirge at the Astoria hotel set it up for us. It was well worth the time and effort. We did not wait in any lines. The guide always took us in the back way to everything.

Canals (Part II)

by Canadienne

Boat trips through the canals can easily be found on Nevsky Prospekt at the bridge over the Moika and at the bridge over the Griboedova (further west)

As the city is sometimes referred to as The Venice of the North, it would be a shame to miss out on this special aspect of it. Our boat ride cost the equivalent of 10 USD per person and lasted just over an hour, with a commentary in Russian. The language was irrelevant though, as the singular draw is the view. . .

Russians and vodka

by sophiebeans

Russians sure can put away a lot of vodka! I consider myself to be a pretty heavy drinker, but on my first night in St. Petersburg, Babushka made a toast to my arrival, and when I drank whatever was in the glass, I started to cough and wheeze! Potent stuff! Pictured here is my young friend, Val teaching me to correct way to drink a shot of vodka: with a pickle chaser! Nas Dorov'ya, Val!

Playing violoncello

by alcalacurro

Music is part of the Russian culture and you can see this artistic manifestation everywhere. In St. Petersburg there are many palaces where you can appreciate what Russian people felt about music since ancient times. Music rooms are dispersed in the different corridors and reminiscences about famous figures are in the brains of everybody.
One option here is taking music classes like me in the photo. I studied here one days with the cellist of a quartet music group. They invited me to go to one of their concerts in the Music Museum and was exactly what I did. The concert was celebrated there between chamber music and a fabulous singer accompanied with a piano. The museum is fantastic to see different music instruments around all parts of the world.
Ancient, exotic or experimental string instruments are distributed along palace rooms.

Vyritsa

by Lalique

Vyritsa is a village about 20-30km from St. Pete, it is known to be one the best dacha places and it is indeed. One can witness a lot of old dacha buildings, some of which unfortunatwly were abandoned and fell into decay, but still keep the traces of the past beauty.

The village as well is known for the church of Lady of Kazan', which was built without a single nail (!!!). The church inside is of dark wood as well, which makes the whole atmosphere dim and sets the mind to think of eternity of existence....
