Peterhof, Russia

[nggallery id=77 template=”caption”]

This used to be royal family’s grand summer palace. It is Tzar’s attempt to imitate Versailles in Russia (so it wasn’t too surprising that they ended like French royal family). Now it is a huge park housing hundreds of unique artist fountains. I didn’t make to the day when the palace building is open, however, I was told that the fountains here are its true highlights. So having only access to its gardens, I would like to think my loss isn’t too much…
