St. Petersburg Parks: a Skating Rink in New Holland
January 9, 2020 00:22


The man-made New Holland Island located in the very centre of St. Petersburg has long been a closed territory, where the ruined historical buildings destroyed by fire lived out their remaining days. However, a few years ago, this place began to be improved, and on August 27, 2016, the renewed New Holland cultural and entertainment centre opened its doors to visitors.

This park is one of the most interesting places in St. Petersburg, and it should definitely be included in the excursion program. The territory of the island is covered with a picturesque green massif.

It has shops, as well as booths with trendy fast food from well-known St. Petersburg restaurants, antique-style wooden pavilions and restored historic buildings that host interesting exhibitions and events.

In summer, open-air concerts of popular musical groups of the Northern capital are held there, in winter an ice rink is open on the Island. The main children's entertainment in New Holland is a playground in the form of a huge model of the old “Peter and Paul” frigate.

Address: 2 Embankment of the Admiralty Canal, St. Petersburg.

How to get there: the nearest metro stations are Admiralteyskaya, Sadovaya.

Working hours: from Monday to Thursday from 10:30 a.m. to 10:00 p.m., from through Sunday from 10:30 a.m. to 11:00 p.m.

Entrance fee: free admission.

A skating rink in New Holland

The skating rink has enough room for 250 people simultaneously. Skating here can be combined with dancing, because the stage for performances by contemporary musicians and other performers is located very close. The skating rink is open daily from 11:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. It should be borne in mind that the skating schedule is divided into hourly sessions in order to leave time for cleaning the rink in between. Thus the ice will servemuch longer.

The cost of one hour of skating varies from 150 to 450 roubles, depending on the time of visit and the age of the guest. Admission does not include skate rental. The rent costs 350 roubles. A recreation area is open on the stage: you can warm up there. You can go there directly from the ice without taking off your skates. This zone contains tables and chairs for the visitors of the skating rink. You can also go there before the start of the session, while the ice is prepared for skating, and taste exceptional pastries.
