Peterhof and Peterhof Palace[edit]

I started to split and sort out what in the Article was to much about the Palaces and Gardens, and I mooved it to Peterhof Palace article. to keep in the article Peterhof a more balanced overview of the City Peterhof, since this article should not be about the city but about the palaces hosted in the city. Of course the Palaces should be mentionned in the article the city Peterhof, but the detailed description and history of the palaces should be written in the article Peterhof Palace --Sosoev (talk) 14:15, 21 January 2010 (UTC)

we have no copyright problems in this article[edit]

This is originally a wiki article then copied by a web site... we have no copyright problems on this article, since I transfered text that was under {{peterhof]] the city to Peterhof Palace, 2 different articles... if the content was copied by another site from the wiki peterhof article it does not mean this site has the rights on this article.... please do not delete this article, it is already quite a work to improove and sort out these 2 articles that are mixed up peterhof and peterhof palace]]--Sosoev (talk) 14:17, 21 January 2010 (UTC)

History[edit]

This sentence: "In the few months that elapsed between the outbreak of war in the west and the appearance of the German Army, employees were only able to save a portion of the treasures of the palaces and fountains." doesn't make sense. There were two years between the outbreak of the war in the west and the appearance of the German army at Peterhof. If instead it means "outbreak of the war in the east", then that would make the sentence sensible. 78.86.165.101 (talk) 13:27, 30 September 2010 (UTC)

West and east aren't absolute, but relative terms. The relevant war was the one between soviet Russia and nazi Germany. This one started in the west of Peterhof and the east of Germany. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 212.201.74.47 (talk) 20:50, 29 September 2011 (UTC)

Dutch or German?[edit]

This article says that the name is German, but Peter the Great says it's Dutch. Which one is it? Given that Peter himself had a lot of contact with the Dutch, that seems more likely, but still. CodeCat (talk) 02:11, 8 April 2013 (UTC)

From my understanding, Dutch would be Pieterhof.--Ymblanter (talk) 06:02, 8 April 2013 (UTC)
Both forms of the name exist in Dutch. But the emperor is called Peter de Grote, not Pieter. CodeCat (talk) 13:54, 8 April 2013 (UTC)
Then I am afraid we just can not say.--Ymblanter (talk) 13:56, 8 April 2013 (UTC)
