Traditional opening festival of the fountains in Peterhof takes place in mid-May and on this day the entire collection of the Russian “Versailles” goes live. Each fountain is turned on one by one accompanied by musical performances, fireworks and celebrations.

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.
