    Unfortunately photographing and video taking in all the museums of "Peterhof" is prohibited (due to the special status of the Museum-Reserve "Peterhof", included in the UNESCO World Heritage List and to the State of the most valuable objects of cultural heritage of the peoples of the Russian Federation).
    But you can take photos and videos in the gardens.

    Scenery en route to Peterhof

    Not too dire a warning here, just a note that the scenery on the approach to Peterhof isn't really very spectacular. The wind blows quite hard due to the speed of the Hydrofoil, so it's difficult to really enjoy what you do pass.

    If you enjoy boating and waterways, be sure to do a tour of the canals of St. Petersburg. . .they're much prettier and done at a speed that's appropriate for lesiure enjoyment.

    It's worth noting that there's a decidedly playful side to the fountains and grounds ~ a few "trick" fountains have been designed to spray people who step too close. . .and placed in different areas of the park. :-)
