St Petersburg Peterhof

Chapel-we didn't get to see inside.

We did get a tour of the palace but no photos.  I can remember some of it-a room with a Turkish couch in pale blue and several Chinese rooms.  Otherwise it was more over the top opulance.

The fountains were off when we arrived.  They are turned on every day at 11am, so we got to see them come on.  They are 18th century technology-all gravity fed.  Pretty amazing.
