An emotional, subjective and intimate look at the other side of the pompous touristic place.

Peterhof (also known as Petrodvorets) is a place near St. Petersburg, Russia, which is famous among tourists for its gardens, palaces and fountains. Many thousands of people come here to spend money, eat, drink, have fun, and so on. And to take a look at the heritage of imperial luxury, in addition.

At the same time, there is another side of Peterhof which remains unseen for the most part of visitors. Boring and graceless existance of an average small post-Soviet town is near, in just one step aside.

Igor Tswetkow explores the mood and the essense of that second side and candidly shares his impressions in a form of emotional and subjective drawings.
