St. Petersburg, Russia. 4

Remember that time I took a trip to St. Petersburg? Well, there’s one more day that I haven’t shared with you yet. The last day.

I decided to save the best for last and visit the Peterhof Palace just before I left. Peterhof is an immensely luxurious royal estate that lies on the shores of the Baltic Sea. Founded by Peter the Great, the entire place is filled with beautiful fountains, statues, palaces and gardens.

I got there in the evening because it’s always scorching hot at midday¬†during summer. No one told me though, that the fountains only work up to¬†5pm. So with only 10 minutes left, I hurriedly paid for my ticket (I think it cost¬†about 5 USD), walked through security and found my way to the grand fountains. Oh, it was magnificent! Even with the¬†few minutes that I had left, I still managed to admire the amazing show from a very strategic place.

After 5, I strolled down to the Baltic Sea, which starts at the foot of the Lower Gardens. It was all so serene. They say you could spot Finland on the other side. I did see a landmass, but I’m not quite sure if that¬†was indeed Finland.

Moscow, Russia. 3

This, my friends, is Arkhangelskoye Palace. This property was home to one of Russia’s prominent nobles, The Golitsyns.

The entire estate is now a state museum. Lying on the banks of the Moscow river, the grounds are adorned with numerous fascinating sculptures, neoclassic buildings and well-trimmed gardens.

Anyone who appreciates architecture will definitely love this place.

Take a look!
