St. Petersburg, Russia- Summer Palace (Петр Дворец)
 
This is the third picture thread from a series of places my girlfriend and I visited over our vacation in June. Here, I decided to split up St. Petersburg pictures in two, one specifically for the Summer Palace and the other for the rest of St. Petersburg (although the Hermitage probably also deserves a thread of its own). Enjoy!

The entrance:

This is supposed to symbloize Russia's defeat of Sweden that gave them the territory where St. Petersburg now stands.
