Petergof

Inspired by his visit to Versailles, Peter the Great had the palace and the dazzling water cascade built by 1724. The palace was rebuilt during his daughter’s (Elizabeth) time by Bartolomeo Rastrelli.

      In this case you should go. Petergof is definitely gorgeous, as are other palaces around SPb.
