The Upper Gardens, much smaller than the Lower Gardens, and formed by flowerbeds arranged around large pools, is located on the terrace in front of the main facade of the Grand Palace, and originally welcomed visitors at the entrance to the imperial residence. Based on the sketches of Peter I, it has not undergone major changes over the years. The main attraction is the Fountain of Neptune, where a bronze statue depicting the god of the sea, is portrayed with a crown on his head and a trident in his hand, surrounded by knights on sea horses, and Tritons riding winged dragons and dolphins. The baroque work was sculpted in Germany around 1650.
