Parks and Squares, Saint Petersburg: 74 reviews and 138 photos
Nice park with fountains and palaces, created by Peter The Great himself in the 18th century after he saw French Versailles.
Peter was a very talented man (well, all Gemini are like that, I suppose ;) and knew a couple dozen crafts, one of which was hydrauliics. So, it was actually he - Peter - who did all the work - created a sophisticated system of pumps which would carry the water to the fountains.
Directions: It is located about 20 kilometers west and 6 kilometers south of St. Petersburg, overlooking the Gulf of Finland.
