Recommendation by Lemi

Often referred to as the “Russian Versailles,” Peterhof boasts an impressive cluster of lavish parks and mansions. The brainchild of Peter the Great, the UNESCO World Heritage site features a series of structures that pay tribute to the country’s rich history and heritage. Spot Peterhof’s majestic centerpiece, the Grand Palace, which served as the former summer palace of Russia’s monarchs. Glorious water fountains surround the building, the most famous being the Samson Fountain on the Grand Cascade. Find the statue of Samson tearing up a lion’s jaw, symbolizing Russia’s victory over Sweden during the Great Northern War!
