These parks are simply breathtaking. But the star here are the fountains in Peterhof. We were lucky to admire how the fountains are turned on to the accompaniment of grand anthem. As our guide explained to us the gardeners turn on the fountains each day at precisely 11:00 AM. Find yourself a good location above or below to take video and photos. It’s a must see for any tourist visiting Russia.

Despite the pouring rain, we loved the Peterhof gardens, and enjoyed travelling by hydrofoil. Mary was full of interesting information and anecdotes – I really feel like I’ve learned more Russian history than before our tour! The tour was enjoyable and well worth the money.
