Peterhof Will Increase Prices For Tickets

The State Museum Reserve “Peterhof” in St. Petersburg will increase the prices for tickets in the new season, as the press service of the State Museum reported to “Interfax” on Thursday. According to the source, the new prices will be established in the end of April, when the season of fountains begins.

      The full fare for the entrance to the Lower Park of Peterhof will make up 700 roubles. A discount ticket for Russian citizens will cost 450 roubles. The increase in prices will make up 200 and 150 roubles, respectively. “All the privileges of certain categories of our visitors will be saved. Entrance for all persons under the age of 16 years will still be free. We will also cancel a higher weekend rate, now the ticket price will be the same on weekdays and on weekends” - the interlocutor of the agency said. The price increase is caused by the economic situation, as the press-service noted.


      There are 25 museums in Peterhof, each of which tells about a separate page in the history of Russian culture. Every year, it hosts about 50 thousand excursions. Most tourists tend to visit Peterhof in the period from late May to September, to see the famous fountains. They start to work on May 8-9. The grand opening of fountains with pageant and fireworks is held last Saturday of May. Evening fireworks show is arranged in September. The fountains are closed quietly, without any show in the first half of October. However, Peterhof in winter is also very interesting. It is possible to see what you can see during the summer due to lack of enough time. After switching off the fountains entrance to the Lower Park becomes free. Peterhof parks are generally open all year, except for one week in spring, when they are closed "to dry". In winter, there are some museums open. "Monplaisir", Grottoes of Grand Cascade, Aviary, Imperial Yachts Museum, Gothic chapel, Tsaritsyn and Olgin pavilions are closed. Peterhof is clearly divided into two parts: gala and everyday part. The guests arrive to the gilded city of fountains by "Meteor" on the bay and by train to the normal suburb. Non-museum quarters live under the wing of the royal parks and palaces of luxury.
