Trip to Saint-Petersburg [Part 2]

Hello all! This is a part two of my story about St Petersburg. As I said on a previous post on a second Saturday we went to see one of the greatest St Petersburg's suburban estates - Peterhof.


To get there we took a hydrofoil. It's a bit expensive but is the fastest and the most interesting way to get to Peterhof. You get to see Winter palace and Vasilievsky island from the water, cross the Gulf of Finland and come directly to the Lower park.



First thing we saw was a Marine Canal which leads to the Great Cascade and the Great Palace. It's a breathtaking view!



The gardens are huge! Lots of impressive fountains, beautiful statues, long alleys and amazing flowerbeds.






And one more bonus of Lower park - there are many squirrels! I knew it and I took some nuts to feed them. Aren't they cute?




We spent a whole day there and when we got back to Petersburg we could barely walk. So we went to the hotel to have some rest. And in the middle of the night we got up to see raising of the bridges. 




Next day we went to see Yusupov Gardens and Yusupov Palace. 







And the night before our departure we went to see a 'Midsummer Night's Dream' ballet at Mariinsky theatre. I loved not only an amazing performance but also the fabulous theatre itself!




Of course it's not all we wanted to see. But that's a good reason to come back to St. Petersburg next time, right?
