Me Skating in Moscow
My Fall in St. Petersburg

No visit to St. Petersburg would be complete without a visit to the beautiful palace of Peterhof (also called Petergof, Petrovorets, and Peter's Palace). Peterhof is about 30 kilometers west of St. Petersburg, and I usually travel there by hydrofoil and return home by bus and underground subway. It is possible to skate in Peterhof, but I usually make this a non-skating day trip to give my feet a chance to rest.

The main reason to visit Peterhof is to spend the day at Peter's Palace. The palace is a fabulously ornate structure built to rival the Palace of Versailles. You can take a guided tour of the interior of the palace, but I prefer to spend the day strolling through the formal upper gardens and the park-like lower grounds, with more than 150 very unique fountains. If it is a very warm day, I might even decide to climb IN all those fountains and dance in the water sprays (it's a perfectly acceptable thing to do).
