Peterhof is a town 47 kilometres from St. Petersburg. In the 18th and 19th centuries it was the summer residence of the Russian tsars and for this reason it sometimes is referred to as the “Russian Versailles”. The palace-ensemble, along with the city center, is recognised as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
