The 147 fountains here – that add to the spectacularity of the already tremendous palace and park complex – are effectively turned on and off. Accompanied by classical music by Russian composers, ball dances, cannon shots and fireworks, this splendid festival will raise your endorphin levels to the maximum.
The best part about Peterhof’s fountain season is that there is also an official closing party held in September:
Opening ceremony: May;
Closure ceremony: September.
