Photographer's Note

This is a partial view of the fountain in front of Peterhof Palace. In this image you can see only half part of the structure, there is a similar stairs at right, not visible here. The building in the left upper corner is the royal chapel and we can see part of the palace at right.
When the Nazis were near the palace the Russians did a big effort to save the furniture, artwork, sculptures and most they could in few days, but many things were lost. These sculptures you see were buried in the ground of the gardens. After that the palace was invaded by Germans, bombed by the Soviet army and was destroyed by the fire. The place was rebuilt after the war.

Essa uma vista parcial da fonte diante do Pal醕io do Peterhof. Nessa imagem podemos ver apenas uma metade da fonte, a outra metade com escadarias parecidas est do lado direito, mas n鉶 pode ser vista aqui. O pr閐io visto no canto superior esquerdo a capela real e um pouco mais direita vemos um peda鏾 da fachada do pal醕io.
Quando os nazistas estavam perto do pal醕io os russos fizeram um imenso esfor鏾 em quest鉶 de poucos dias e arrancaram dali a maior parte da mob韑ia, das obras de arte e mais detalhes que puderam, mas muita coisa se perdeu. Essas est醫uas douradas foram enterradas nos jardins. Depois o pal醕io foi invadido pelos alem鉫s, bombardeado pelos sovi閠icos e pegou fogo. Depois da guerra tudo foi reconstru韉o.
