Kelly ParasTalk about jaw-dropping! The Grand Cascade at Peterhof Palace is like nothing I've ever seen before. The elaborate movement of water fountains, waterfalls and shooting streams of water look like some kind of melodic dance. Given that it's so impressive today, I can only imagine how mind blowing it was in the 1700's.
OF4***56Outstanding beautiflly looked after with massive number of historical interesting and superb collections. To do the Hermitage and all the associated buildings properly you need two days. Tour guides will falsly claim you get in quicker you do not as everyone goes on tour and no one goes without tour.....quicker without tour.Also book via internet and you have even quicker entrance with no queues . This magnificient Palace is a reason to visit St Petersburg alone and nothing else.Do not use taxi unless Russian local books and aranges fare. Eat before you go in.
泰宁根吴承恩I went to St. Petersburg in winter, so visiting the Summer Palace in winter is really interesting, but in the summer palace garden in winter, it seems that there is not much to see. In addition to white snow or white snow, the interior is more worth visiting
The Peters Palace is very nice to see and expereience as you walk through, but the Peterhof Gardens are spectacular. Smaller in scope than the vast, quad like acreage of Versailles, the Peterhof gardens are in a terraced like "Grand Cascade" design with stairs down to the famous Samson fountain with the gilded figures. The afternoon we were there in August, had light rain and the mist from the fountains perhaps reminded us of the nearness to the sea, and perhaps the cool inviting breezes that summer would offer. Recommended that you wander around this area to get a clear idea of Peter the Great's vision. Of technological interest is that none of the fountains rely on pumps, as the water is supplied from natural springs and collects in reservoirs in the Upper Garden. Highly recommended!
The Palace is located in a massive area covering hundreds of hectares of land. The time taken to see the Palace from the inside depends upon how deeply does one view each & every artifact on display. There's ample room to store your over coats & bags - you cant carry any bag inside the Palace. There are toilets located inside the Palace which is very convenient especially during Winter season.
Summer Palace is a day away. The seaside of the Summer Palace is the Gulf of Finland. Walking in the garden of the Summer Palace, from time to time, I met a series of European architecture and sculptures, a romantic style.

The upper garden is free, the summer palace is 300 rubles in the garden, the grand palace is 550 rubles (the big palace is in the lower garden, but the ticket is purchased at the independent ticket office in the lower garden), and there is a student ticket in the lower garden of the Summer Palace.

Peter the Great is a tsar who especially likes fountains. He found that the fountain not only wets the air, lowers the temperature, but also has a strange artistic effect in decorating the city. He also built many fountains in his own official residence, the "Summer Garden" in St. Petersburg. However, unlike the magnificent palace fountains, the fountains are built among the green trees, and the white marble statues are very elegant.
Of course, during the Tsarist period, the fountain was only a place for the royal family to entertain and entertain, and the ordinary people were not blessed to enjoy. After the October Revolution, the Soviet government turned these places into parks and opened them free to the people. In addition to this, some new fountains have been built. Moscows national friendly fountains and stone flower fountains can be counted among the best. The National Friendly fountain is a large fountain surrounded by 16 gold-plated statues. Sixteen women dressed in different national costumes represented the 16 republics of the Soviet Union at that time, symbolizing the great unity of the various nations of the former Soviet Union. The "stone flower" fountain is decorated with a natural colored stone (also known as "semi-precious stone") in the Ural Mountains. It symbolizes the rich mineral resources and mining achievements of the former Soviet Union. Both fountains are built in Moscow's "National Economic Achievement Exhibition Center" (Russian short for ""), surrounded by magnificent pavilions. Pools, statues, fountains, colonnades and buildings form a themed garden that fully demonstrates the strength of the country during the Soviet era.

In addition to the many boulevards and several small squares in the summer garden, the most attractive visitors are the marble statues created by Italian masters and the famous Rumson Fountain. In front of the Grand Palace is a group of fountains known as the Great Falls. The fountain complex has 37 golden statues, 29 submerged reliefs, 150 figurines, 64 fountains and two trapezoidal waterfalls. In the center of a large semi-circular pool of fountains, there is a statue of the 3m high and 5 tons of Hercules and the lions fighting. This is the famous Lomson Fountain.
