Beschrijving

The Peterhof was the Nordic rival of Versailles, from which it took its inspiration and which it surpasses in the ingenuity and profusion of its fountains. Standing on top of a hill with its fabulous gardens on the Baltic, it seems like a vision in a dream. From June to September the Peterhof gardens are transformed into an aquatic extravaganza that is worth a trip to St. Petersburg just to see, with thousands of crystalline water jets gushing up, intersecting and falling back in iridescent sprays that highlight the splendour of the buildings.
