      ... upper gardens.

      The palace is entered via an elaborate staircase and is beautifully decorated with a mirrored hall based on the one in Versaille. There are two rooms with magnificent Chinoiserie but you don't really have time to admire them properly because you have to step through them very quickly. The guide told us that in Soviet times, you had to hold your breath as you walked through them !

      We had to make sure that we were outside the palace by ...

      Much smoother start to our day! Met our lovely tour guide Maria and went about 1 hour outside of the city to Peterhof, the palace that Peter the Great built in the early 1700's to resemble Versaille. He was good friends with Louis 14th and wanted a more over the top palace and gardens! and he succeeded! On the way there we passed Putin's "country house". Lots of Russians have "Dachi" which are summer cottages where they live during the summer and grow fruits and ...

      ... Selo or Pushkin(the town the palace is in) on the timetable at the stop. After 25 minutes the 186 comes by and again I ask the very nice babushka conductor if it was the right bus for the palace. Yes it was she said. I paid my 15 roubles and sat down. Sure enough we passed the stop I originally got on at and kept going to Pushkin. The countryside is flat as a pancake here. The babushka was nice enough to tell me when ...

      ... in St Petersburg) This palace was started by Catherine I (2nd wife of Peter the Great). This is a beautiful palace in Russian Baroque style. In one room there is 55 pounds of gold leaf used in the decorations. Beautiful inlaid floors. But the true jewel is the Amber Rooms that Russian artisans have recreated. The original amber room contained three walls of Amber panels given to Peter ...

      Had even earlier start today - 6.45am. Headed out to Peterhof. Again this was practically razed to the ground and was rebuilt/restored. After looking through the palace (no photos allowed) we went for a stroll through the extensive parks with over 150 fountains. Saw only a fraction of these and ended up back at the palace for the highlight of the fountains. This was the main fountain combo starting up for the day. Done at ...
