 Peterhof isis the ensemble of palaces and gardens situated on the Gulf of Finland west of Saint Petersburg, designed and built by Peter the Great to be a summer residence. It is also the name of an adjacent town of 82,000 people. The area was extensively damaged during World War II during occupation by Nazi Germany. Reconstruction efforts began almost immediately following the war, and they are still underway. Peterhof is a Dutch and German word meaning "Peter's Court". Peter was fascinated by the West and took on many of its customs in his court, switched to the Julian calendar, and so on. European influence is abound in the Peterhof, called the Russian Versailles.
