Peterhof by IvanAndreevich Peterhof by IvanAndreevich
Peterhof (Russian Петергоф) is a series of palaces and gardens, laid out on the orders of Peter the Great. It's located in the suburbs of Saint Petersburg, Russia. The cool thing is that every fountain you see in this photo is powered by gravity - no pumps are involved.

That's what everyone tells me! I've heard it's one of Russia's most beautiful cities. I love art, culture, and just about everything Russian - so it's at the top of my places to go.

The city is quite unlike the rest of Russia, it's more European.

Yes, due to the desire of the Czar to make it such and the hiring of European architects.

The old architecture - of course. Most old Russian buildings from before the revolution could pass for Europe somewhere. But I'm actually talking about the people.

Probably because the city draws non-Russians, like myself, to it.
Doesn't Russia have quite a number of different ethnic groups in it?

Yes, but I don't think Spb has a disproportionately foreign population. I have a few friends living there, so I'll go there again soon.

Плитка прямо-таки HDR...да и небо тоже... Здорово смотрится!

Если заинтересует - взгляните на нашу серию Питерских фоток [link]

немного смущает небо, а вот квадратики плитки смотрятся интересно
