State museum-preserve “Peterhof” is a magnificent palace and park ensemble, which was used by Russian emperors as a summer residence. It is dubbed as the Russian Versailles and is recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage.
The greatest technological achievement of Peterhof is that all of the fountains operate without the use of pumps. Water is supplied from natural springs and collects in reservoirs in the Upper Gardens. The elevation difference creates the pressure that drives most of the fountains of the Lower Gardens, including the Grand Cascade. -Wikipedia

12AM on a clear summer day in Reykjavik Iceland. The #Hallgrimskirkja
Cathedral Church is probably the tallest structure in Reykjavik. When you get lost along the narrow roads of downtown, the Cathedral will be your northern star.

Last year, I told myself I’m going to Iceland. Determination beats all excuses. This Geysir spews up every 8 minutes or so.
