Amazing and very elaborate fountain in front of the Grand Palace. Its cascades and numerous sculptures makes one surreal site. At 11 it has grand opening for the day with classical music and it's worth seeing.

We arrived just in time for the opening of the Bath Block. At exactly 11:00 am classical music filled the air, and the fountains came alive. It was quite cold but the sight definitely warmed our hearts.

Unfortunately, there are several attractions in the Petergof that cause unnecessary fatigue - this is one of them.

Just one of many grand features on the grounds, well done, lots of golden decor. Very beautiful, again on it's own not fantastic but as part of the overall grounds and scheme it is a major contributor.

As a part of the Peterhof Palace Gardens, the Bath area is also beautiful. The fountains and perfect gardens offer lots of photo opportunities. This attraction is a must see when in St Petersburg! We were here with our Canada-US geocaching group.
