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.

Мои глаза начали радоваться еще при подходе к острову. Ухоженная, засаженная зеленой травкой со стороны острова, набережная Адмиралтейского канала, сразу же привлекла мое внимание.

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.show original

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.)show original
Почти ещё ничего не функционирует. Интересная детская площадка половина которой скелет строящегося корабля. Наверное интересно, когда будут выставки и концерты. А пока делать нечего.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.show original

Konstantin KOverall 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.show original
