Board the high speed Hydrofoil for the cruise from St Petersburg to Peterhof.
Visit of the Fountain Park. Peterhof Fountains & Grounds – Built to rival and top Versailles in France, the palace sits atop of a hill overlooking the Gulf of Finland. Peter the Great drafted the layout for the 300-hundred acre park featuring 176 fountains and supervised the design of many of the park’s palaces. The Grand Cascade, the most famous fountain group, features gilded Samson prying open lion's jaws as water cascades down the terraced steps, and small spouting fountains anoint smaller sculptures. We shall stroll through the lower parks and gardens, and view and "experience" (be careful!) some of the Peters. surprise creations among the many decorative fountains.
