11 Bowl Fountains at Peterhof Palace near Saint Petersburg, Russia

Alongside the Samson Fountain are two parterre flower beds. In the center of each is a fountain created by Nicola Michetti in 1722. Collectively named the Bowl Fountains, the one in the west is often called the Italian Fountain and this eastern one the French Fountain. The nicknames recognize the nationality of the men who created their hydraulics. The fountains were recrafted from Carrara marble after WWII. These two large, rectangular gardens parallel to the Grand Palace are the demarcation for the Lower Park.
