Kids and adults alike will love running through the surprise splash fountains in the Peterhoff gardens. If you figure out the secret to what sets off the fountains don't tell!
- Of all St Petersburg's attractions, the country estate of Peterhof is perhaps the place that inspires the greatest pride among the city's population. Extravagant and bombastic in parts, elegant and relaxed in others, Peterhof's palace and grounds are more than ample testimony to the crazy opulence of Tsarist Russia. The grounds are split into two parts. The steps leading down from the palace to the lower gardens run next to the Grand Cascade, in summer a dizzying orgy of nearly 150 fountains, glittering golden statues and checkered ceramic.
