Dear friends, let's visit Peterhof — the country seat of the Russian royal family for nearly two centuries — particularly, one of the gorgeous Peterhof gardens, the park of Alexandria, the family nest of the Russian emperor Nicolas I and his wife Alexandra. This park is not so famous as the Lower Garden with fountains, but this makes it even more interesting. And, yes! let's visit it in winter! What's more, I invite you to take a ski tour around the park.
It will let you to combine doing some sports, enjoying the beauty of architectural monuments of the park against the amazing winter landscape and learning some interesting things from the history of Romanovs' family — the last Russian royal dynasty.
There is a ski track in the park, and, if you're a beginner, I'll teach you the basics of cross-country skiing. You can use your own skis or rent them on the spot http://www.velorodeo.ru/katalog_prokatov_zima/petergof/
The price for the rent of a ski set (shoes, skis and polls) is 600 rub/day or 250 rub/hour.
