Saint-Petersburg. Peterhof. The Grand Cascade

There are many fountains in the world that stun with their splendor, and the Grand Cascade of Peterhof, planned by Peter the Great, is definitely of them.

Of course, it is by no means the most spectacular; it doesn’t surprise the tourists with its light effects nor perform famous musical compositions, but no other fountain in the world can boast such sculptural splendor.

The statues shining with gold in the sun are the main asset of the Grand Cascade of Peterhof.
