Went to Holland to learn ship building and got his country a Baltic port. -Peter build a phenomenal summer palace called Peterhof. He modeled it on Versailles. The fountains and the park were unbelievable. Peter was a tricky guy - he created trick fountains that soaked his noble guests ( not just anyone could get an invite to Peterhof). ...
