Petrodvorets is one of the most interesting localities of the suburbs of St Petersburg (until year 1944 Peterhof was called, that in German it means "the court of Pedro").
The history of Peterhof goes back to the dawn of century eighteen, when it was based to commemorate the victories of Russia in the fights by the exit to the Baltic Sea. The decoration of the sources of Peterhof locks up, almost all she, the idea of exaltation of the naval power of the nation.
