First and zero-year cadets of the special department of the Military Institute of Railway Troops and Military Communications of the Military Academy of Logistics named after General of the Army A.V. Khrulev visited the Lower Park of the State Museum-Reserve “Peterhof”.

During the excursion, the cadets not only saw fountains (Grand Cascade, Roman fountains, Chess Mountain cascade, Pyramid, Sheaf, Sun fountains, firecracker fountains), but also visited the Grand Cascade Grottoes Museum. There they, as future military engineers, got an idea of ​​how water flows to the fountains, got acquainted with the work of the Peterhof fountain team, which was founded in September 1721 by order of Peter I, and also learned where the expression “from the ship to the ball” came from.

Excursions play an important role in the study of the special department of the Russian language by cadets and in expanding their horizons. For this reason, so much attention is paid to visiting sights, writing textbooks on excursions at the Department of the 12th Russian language. The reward for organizing and conducting excursions is the following words of cadets: “We know more about St. Petersburg than about our hometown!”.

The excursion to the Lower Park of Peterhof was a continuation of the summer visits to Kronstadt and Alexandria Park.
