Category:  Sights

Created by the order of Peter, the great, Peterhof place is a series of palaces and gardens. These are also called as Russian Versailles. There is a city center that comes along with the same and both together, are declared as a UNESCO World Heritage site. The large Samson fountain, placed right in front of the Peterhof place, can be viewed through this camera.

Water comes out of lion jaws in this fountain, thereby representing the Swedish coat of arms, marking one of the biggest victories on St. Samson’s Day. You can also see the 16-meter high bluff lying less than a hundred meters from the shore. You can also get a good glimpse of the tourists coming to visit this place. The camera doesn’t give you an inside peak to the Grand Palace though.
