Video: Underneath the Grand Cascade at Petergof: fountains that run only on gravity

Had a little behind-the-scenes tour of the famous fountains.

I didn’t get as much footage as I would’ve liked, and the “grotto tour” was a bit short, but still interesting. The fountains were an engineering feat in the 1800’s.

They still run without pumps, to this day running only on gravity.
