New Holland, St. Petersburg

(3.5/5 based on 120+ 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.

  • great rink with good ice. On weekends, a lot of people, but not fantastic. Many new rental skates. The entrance fee for adults in output 450 rubles, rental-200-250 rubles.

  • Winter is here, but to skate, doing nothing. A large rink, with places for school knapsacks. Still there are several cafes, toilets and burn a few fires behind bars. You can visit with the children, there is a hill.

  • One of my new favorite places in St. Petersburg. Beautiful architecture, perfectly organized space. There are a few stalls offering tasty food. And still very much a skating rink. In General, the place is very reminiscent of my favorite Gorky Park.

  • 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.
