New Holland, St. Petersburg
(3.5/5 based on 100+ 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.

  • So much advertising around Peter, but I did not understand what the fshka Park. Yes, there's a very pure (but not everywhere in St. Petersburg is very dirty). Yes. There is beautiful (but Peter everywhere is beautiful, because there and travel tourists). But that's all. We had half an hour ...

  • Very attractive place. The island and its facilities are under active reconstruction, therefore open only part of the island. But then, as cozy and stylishly it looks now cannot please the eye. Will be nearby-be sure to take a stroll. And in the middle of November there will be opened a skating rink!

  • Amazing place! More such to be in SPB please
  • Common place and poor modern "art"
  • Amazing place. Very hip and vibrant.
  • Nice place to get some sun rays on a rare sunny day!
  • Liked the garden of aromatic herbs, children's playground, you can walk on the grass and sit (there are special chairs for adults and children). Cons: pebbles on the playground gets dirty (the child's shoes and hands were yellow); on the lawns of the stands water may drain the bad; prices of fast food; and the music is repetitive and on the fan (once, maybe music and change) is missing. For us, the local Aboriginal people, a good place for walks, including children. And from other areas or for visitors only if they visit the show. Special entertainment is gone. There are other alternatives in the city.
