Large-scale restoration has got under way in St. Petersburg’s suburb that’s famous for its 18th century unique architectural monuments, Peterhof.
17 gilded statues decorating the Grand Cascade will be restored for the first time outside the open-air museum at a St. Pete restoration workshop boasting the air condition that will help preserve leaf gold for a long time.
The statues are due back in Peterhof by early summer.
