Peterhof Palace: The Russian Versailles

May 20, 2013

The Likhachev Foundation has worked hard to let us see this incredible city, including arranging for a tour of Peterhof Palace, just outside of St. Petersburg on the Gulf of Finland.   There are 150 fountains…all run by gravity and no mechanical pumps.  Incredible. The photos speak for themselves:
