3.6/5 based on 95+ reviews on the web
New Holland is a remarkable landmark in St Petersburg, contemporary to the city, which was created in the 18 century by russian tzar Peter the Great as the main gate to Western civilization.

From the moment of its founding, New Holland has been under naval control and used for maintenance of the Russian fleet. At the turn of the twenty-first century, the island has been given over to the city, launching a new chapter in its history.

Two key goals for the developers of the New Holland Island project are to restore and renovate the historic architectural ensemble on the island, as well as to create a unique mixed-use facility that will become a central part of the lives of city residents.

  • My eyes began to rejoice even when approaching the island. Well-groomed, planted green grass from the Islands, the Admiralty embankment of the Canal, immediately caught my attention. And trees he planted in a row was accompanied by a sense of order and harmony. And later walk on this small, cosy islet me very pleased. It was especially cool to walk along the paths of small white stones laid between bushes completely edible plants (Mint, thyme, etc.). And it's nice to look at the happy kids climbing on the shipyard. Deserve special attention and armchairs-bags, chaotically spread out in this lovely space comfortably sitting on them, you can relax and unwind, look into cloudy skies St.petersberg. On the island is constantly working exhibition of contemporary art, curious exhibition, although in my opinion, it's a bit mračnovata. Play table tennis there, I at that time failed. The next time I go there with my boyfriend to have with whom to play. All in all a place I liked, I will go there with friends.

  • Now all restored. I don't really liked the place-thought to be something interesting, but on the fact of a small park. Good restrooms, playground for children. Really liked the flower beds, on which instead of flowers grow different herbs, spices (cabbage, horseradish, lemon balm, mint, dill, etc.)

  • Almost nothing is more functional. An interesting playground half which skeleton ship under construction. Probably wondering when there will be exhibitions and concerts. In the meantime, do nothing.

  • The atmosphere is quiet, you can relax. But prices for food and drinks.

  • Overall I like the place, especially the fact that there are it exhibitions and other events. At the same time, there you can sit with a good book, and a book taking the same. Come stand or with friends to leave the plates, just one cup of coffee or a beer. But it is worth doing only if the weather is windy enough there.
