The fountains of Peterhof are one of Russia's most famous tourist attractions, drawing millions of visitors every year. Visitors entering the palace are confronted by Rastrelli's incredibly ornate Ceremonial Staircase, which sets the tone for what is to come with a magnificent fresco of Aurora and Genius and multitude of gilded statues.

Its so beautiful and amazing I am not sure words would do it justice. Beautiful colors, I love that each one is different, the gold color. Then there is the rest of the place that has got to be as exciting on the inside. Gorgeous work. #11472836

Love the blue and gold contrast and the repeating lines in this gracefully composed shot. Your stop-motion capture of the fountains is wonderful, Rey. Altogether, this entrance must knock the socks off visitors. As you said, "It sets the tone for what is to come..." I believe you've shared some photos before of the spectacular rooms inside. Oh, the joys of travelling! #11472923
