Peterhof : Saint Petersburg February 23th, 9 in the morning. I took the metro and the bus, direction Peterhof. My Russian friends said that it’s better to see Peterhof in summer because in february it will be all frozen, with snow.
However, I was not disappointed, the Peterhof Palace with the snow was absolutely beautiful. Moreover, the place was empty so it was more convenient to visit. I went in the little forest in front of the Palace, and I saw the gulf of Finland all frozen. It was an amazing view, as far as I can see it was only ice and white.
I will come again in summer to visit the palace and to see the Samson Fountain. However, Peterhof under a blanket of snow is something to see.
