Mystique of st. petersburg

Peterhof Palace, the residence of the Russian tsars, is one of the many wonders of St. Petersburg, which is not to say the only wonder of the city.

But, no doubt, besides the palace, what impresses most is its gardens. Imagine czars walking in the groves, the fountains, sand paths, and terraces that let you see the entire landscape. And, from one of the terraces of the palace you can see the whole backyard, called Lower Park, with the swell, the Gulf of Finland. Quite impressive.

The color combination of yellow and white palace and garden green with golden statues, forming a unique landscape, with great taste and care. Like all Russian monuments. Personally, I think it is one of the wonders created by the man that has surprised me the most. I recommend that you enjoy it quietly, taking pictures of every corner, just like I did.

As we were told there at the palace, the visit to the palace is complicated, but still worth going to see this beautiful garden outside. You can enjoy a wonderful walk through a historical and beautiful palace and park steeped in intrigue. Ah! And it is the largest complex of fountains worldwide. So there you have it ...

Gardens of peterhof

A waterfall and gold. So draw, if he knew, the wonder of the gardens of Peterhof. There is also a palace, but the beauty of this union of nature and imagination of Peter, Tsar architect, makes us forget some of it, to open the eyes and not lose any details of the show. As we enter, we are confronted by the waterfall Grande, hydraulic perfection that unlike the other palaces, the water fell by gravity, from a Lake Superior. Adorning the waterfall there are 38 statues, reliefs 213, busts and vases, and to cap a huge composition of Samson and the Lion, allegory of the Swedish-Russian war. We walk and we walk on sources like Chess waterfall, twin sources Roman copy of the Vatican, the source tree is put up unexpected, a statue of Peter in boots where you have to hit with a coin to have luck, or the rotating source "Sun". Suddenly, and for surprise we reached the sea, the palace of Monplaisir, favorite residence of the Emperor. Teeny and flirty, was where emperors lived like any mortal, even the Empress cooked for his friends ... The view of the Baltic, still, quiet, is from here overwhelming, but by far we glimpse something of the city of Peter. Crowd of buildings dot the park over a thousand acres. Walk it is a delight.

Jardines de peterhof

Una cascada de agua y oro. Así dibujaría, si supiera, la maravilla de los jardines de Peterhof. También hay un palacio, pero la belleza de esta unión de la naturaleza y la imaginación de Pedro, el zar arquitecto, hace que nos olvidemos un poco de él, para abrir los ojos y no perder ningún detalle del espectáculo.
Según entramos, nos encontramos de bruces con la cascada Grande, perfección hidráulica en la que a diferencia de otros palacios, el agua caía por efecto de la gravedad, proveniente de un lago superior.
Adornando la cascada hay 38 estatuas, 213 bajorrelieves, bustos y vasos, y como colofón una gigantesca composición de Sansón y el León, alegoría de la guerra sueco-rusa.
Seguimos caminando y vamos pasando por fuentes como la Cascada del Ajedrez, las fuentes gemelas romanas, copia de las Vaticanas, el árbol fuente que se pone en marcha de imprevisto, una estatua de Pedro con unas botas donde hay que acertar con una moneda para tener suerte, o la giratoria fuente "Sol".
De repente, y por sorpresa llegamos al mar, al palacete de Monplaisir, lugar de residencia favorito del Emperador.
Pequeñito y coqueto, era donde los emperadores vivían como cualquier mortal; incluso la emperatriz cocinaba para sus amigos...
La vista del Báltico, quieto, tranquilo, es desde aquí inabarcable, aunque de lejos vislumbramos algo de la ciudad de Peter.

Multitud de construcciones salpican el parque de más de mil hectareas. Pasearlo es una delicia.

A fountain show

Prominent element of the residence of Peterhof is the spectacular Great Falls, one of the most fascinating of all Russia. Positioned in front of the Grand Palace, the Great Falls is made up of 60 distinct fountains, creating a breathtaking spectacle, combined with 250 golden statues of great impact, representing mythological gods. Work on the construction of the fountain began in 1716 and ended in 1735, with the addition of the impressive fountain of Samson, with a jet of water of over 20 meters. The Great Waterfall, included in the ticket to the Lower Park is only open in the summer from 11.00 and is powered, like all the fountains of Peterhof, a complicated hydraulic system along 25 kilometers.

Uno spettacolo di fontana

Elemento di spicco della residenza di Peterhof è la spettacolare Grande Cascata, uno dei monumenti più affascinanti di tutta la Russia. Posizionata di fronte al Grande Palazzo, la Grande Cascata è composta da 60 distinte fontane che creano uno spettacolo mozzafiato, unite a 250 statue dorate di grande impatto, che rappresentano divinità mitologiche. I lavori della costruzione della fontana iniziarono nel 1716 e terminarono nel 1735, con l’aggiunta dell’imponente fontana di Sansone, con un getto d’acqua che supera i 20 metri.
La Grande Cascata, inclusa nel biglietto d’accesso al Parco Inferiore, è in funzione solo in estate a partire dalle ore 11.00 ed è alimentata, come tutte le fontane di Peterhof, da un complicato sistema idraulico lungo ben 25 chilometri.

Dreamy gardens

Nearby is St. Petersburg Peterhof Palace, with beautiful gardens and a magnificent sources such as photo, which you can see in the background, the Gulf of Finland. In mid-September, and in autumn, the leaves of the trees have a very nice color. Leaving the palace, and path S. Petersburg, to the right and through the trees you can see the Cathedral.

Jardines de ensueño

Cerca de San Petesburgo se encuentra el Palacio de Peterhof, que cuenta con unos jardines bellísimos, y unas fuentes magníficas, como la de la foto, en la que se puede ver, al fondo, el golfo de Finlandia.

A mediados de septiembre, ya en otoño, las hojas de los arboles presentan un colorido muy bonito.

Saliendo del palacio, ya camino de S. Peterburgo, a la derecha y entre los arboles se puede apreciar la catedral de la ciudad.
