    Marine Canal

    by Canadienne Updated Aug 19, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Initially designed and used as a transportation route, the Marine Canal's construction began in 1715.

    Once the Grand Cascade fountain was placed in its way two decades later, it's purpose became purely decorative.

    If you arrive by hydrofoil, as we did, your walk to the palace will take you along this north-south route. The palace is revealed bit by bit. . .and the effect is fairly impressive.

    Peter the Great was a scholarly person who spent a lot of time on the study of science and the arts. In the oak-panelled study room lies a model of the globe.

    This is the study room of Peter the Great where he signed decrees and declarations. Note the quill pen and gold plated ink pot used in the 18th century.

    Catherine the Great was a talented musician. She loved to play the harp. There is a room in the Grand Palace with an original European harp in the center.
