Uploaded on Tuesday 17 June 2014


The City of Saint Petersburg was founded in 1721 by disposition of Czar Peter the Great in a swamp, north of actual Russian territory in a cool and unhealthy region.
The City was built as a winter Residence and not far from there, an other one, but summer Residence, was built and the name of Peterhof was given. The Summer Residence was built very much alike Versailles. The best architects and painters contributed to this wonderful plan.
