Peterhof - complex of buildings

(1/2) > >>

Hi everyone,

I've looked through the Peterhof website (run by the Russian Government) and so far I've been able to discern that Peterhof consists of the Great Peterhof Palace, the Grotto, the Hermitage, the Marly Palace, the Monplasir Palace, the Cottage Palace, the Strelna Palace, and a museum dedicated to the Benois Family.

Can anyone tell me whether or not there were any other palaces or notable buildings that had been standing before the German occupation? Also, can anyone shed some light on what specifically each palace within the Peterhof complex was used for? It'd be wonderful if someone could also please tell me how often this was used in the times of Nicholas II (was this his official residence, or was that the Winter Palace?).

Would anyone also happen to have a floorplan of the Great Peterhof Palace itself?

Sorry to bombard the board with so many questions but I simply can't find out this information.

It was a long walk down to the sea past the palace for us!
