The Upper Gardens

19 May

The Upper Gardens are maybe not as attractive as the Lower Gardens. But they have one advantage, they are free to visit. The more spectacular Lower Gardens have admission. The centrepiece of the Upper Gardens are the Neptune Fountain after the Roman god of the sea. There are some beautiful statues too, I belive that they also are taken out of the Greek/Roman mythology.

The Nepune Fountain which is the largest fountain in the upper gardens at Peterhof Grand Palace near Saint Petersburg, Russia.
