The Bath Block, Peterhof

4.7
Experience all the opulence of the royal family's everyday life at The Bath Block. Located in the lower park of the complex, the bathhouse was the place where the emperors and the empresses would retreat from their stately duties to enjoy various relaxation treatments. The original wood bathing house of Peter the Great underwent serious remodeling for the Empress Maria Alexandrovna, who enjoyed her therapeutic treatments and walks in the nearby Chinese Garden. Even though the structure was severely damaged during World War II, it's now completely restored to its former glory. See bathing pools, fountains, and saunas worthy of a king. As with many other parts of Peterhof, taking pictures and videos is prohibited and tickets must be purchased separately from the other areas of the palace. You can plan St. Petersburg trip in no time by asking Inspirock to help create your itinerary.

  • I took a picture of the Fountain of the great summer of Piyotor, which seems to be very luxurious, with the height and water that seems to be hiding. If you look at the beauty of this fountain, summer is the best choice. It is said that the height of the hill and the thickness of the tube are finely adjusted to ensure the water volume of the Feng shui.

  • Highly recommend to visit, good location and nice places for photo. The sauna building consists not only of the pre-Bannik and the premises, where the washing of the emperor's rooms, but also of their rest room was held. The groups are small. As the premises of the museum are small. There are no Chinese. Very polite staff.

  • Photos were not allowed inside but this Bath House of Peter the Great's tragic wife is very interesting and houses the most ornate shower head fixture we had ever seen. The gardens contain beautiful species of flowers, some not endemic to Russia - ask your guide about the story behind those poppy flowers!
  • I enjoyed touring the Catherine Wing (Екатерининский корпус), Bathhouse Wing (Банный корпус), and Monplezir (Монплезир) more than Peterhof Palace. Why? because this is where they lived, so you get an idea of their lifestyle. Anyone touring these, should also take time to relax next to the Wheatsheaf Fountain. Wheelchair users: You should also always call ahead to find out if there is wheelchair access to bars, clubs, museums, and restaurants. In most cases the answer, sadly, will be in the negative. Alternatively, assume it is inaccessible and hire a few people to lift you and your chair up the stairs, and then be sure to pay very generously for the assistance.
