The Second Day in St.Peterburg. Peterhof.

Continue my story. We were sleeping until 01 p.m after our long night walk. Then we had a breakfast (at 2 p.m. lol) in a cafe. The aim of a day was Peterhof. We were hardly in time there because of our long sleeping. But we went there by a vessel called "meteor" for its high speed due to its underwater wings. That saved some time for us but we couldn't visit Peterhof palaces, they were closed at 6 p.m, we wanted to walk in the park first. So we saw only fountains.
The Big Cascade.  In the center of it there is Samson tearing lion's chaps. The highest jet in Peterhof is bursting forth from the lion's  mouth (its height is 22 meters). These are some photos and video about it. Enjoy it.

And here is an amusement fountain. It's a special bench (but it looks like usual one) fixed in the park. People come to this bench and sit down. Suddenly many jets burst from the bench and all the people sitting on it get wet. Now kids like this fun. But many years ago tsar Peter The Great which was a mischief-maker poured over ladies and gents this way in his Peterhof.
A fountain "The Sun". It is turning slowly and its jets are moving round the center.



And in the evening we came back in St.Peter and enjoyed white nights again. On this photo we are really reading a paper without any light at 12.10 a.m.

I like Peterhof, you can just walk in the park and find such things in it :)
