One more interesting building to visit when you’re in Peterhof is the Russian Orthodox cathedral of saints Peter and Paul. The Cathedral is located just across the main street from the Upper Gardens of the Grand Palace. This Cathedral is built in a more traditional russian architecture style than most cathedrals and churches in Saint Petersburg. It has a pyramidal shape crowned with five tented heads. Unfortunately you’re not allowed to take photos inside russian orthodox churches. But this one is richly and very beautifully decorated inside. If you take a marshutka from Baltisky Railwaystation in Saint Petersburg you can jump of at the bus stop just beside the cathedral. Very cheep, cost only 50 rubles (1,2 €). If you’re not comfortable with the public transport in Russia, you can always buy an excursion. There are lots of companies offering a broad variety of excursions.
