PETERHOF (Grand Palace).

Ok, kings love to compete.
Hm, may be humans love to compete. ;-)

I read somewhere, well, can't remember where since I read quite a bit...
This is one of the wonders of the architectural world.
Anyway, not important.

What's important is this - it's the grandest of all the palaces in Russia.
I didn't see the inside.
But the exterior is far more splendid than those of Versailles. Though it was more or less a copy of it. Russians, please don't take offence. That's just what guides & guide books said. I know nothing ;p

Ok, this is the place for all those romantic walks in the summer.
With uncountable (some said it's 142!) fountains & waterfalls of all kinds & shapes.
It's fun!
