Ploshad Ostrovskogo is literally Ostrovski Square. It is located close to Nevski Prospekt (or Avenue) and here you can see some beautiful buildings like Alexandrovski Theater. In the center of the square, there is a statue of Catherine the Great and a nice gardens. A good place to walk, when you come to Nevski Avenue.
(see also Monument to Catherine the Great and Alexandrovski Theater)

A lovely small park with a larger-than-life statue of Catherine the Great as the centerpiece. It’s directly on Nevsky Prospekt so easy to find.

This square has a nice garden with a bell-shaped statue of Empress Catherine II The Great. The Alexander theatre is at the edge of the square. On the lefthand side, there is the Anichkov garden and on the righthand side there is the Public Library, the second largest in Russia.

Nice small park with lovely flowers, dominated by the big statue of Catherine the Great.
Located adjacent to the Nevsky prospekt so quite easy to find.

This is a nice park to go and relax in after extensive walking. I was informed by a local that it's a meeting place for gays. So beware.

It's a shame that this area doesn't have more reviews as it contains one of the nicest small squares I visited in St. Petersburg. There's a very good statue of Catherine the great and some very nice flower gardens in the square.

Thanks for reading. I’ll appreciate a thumbs up below if you’ve found this helpful.

This is a small park just off Nevsky Prospekt with a large statue of Catherine the Great. On one side of the square there's the Andrinsky Theatre. Worth a quick stop as you explore the Nevsky Prospekt vicinity.

This is a centrally located Park in Ostrovskiy Square, St. Petersburg, dedicated to Empress Catherine. It has beautiful statue of Catherine, standing tall and surrounded by her trusted Courtiers from different faculties. Adjacent to this Park, Hop-on Hop-off Buses start for City Tour. Its so central that most Travellers take a break here to decide on their next destination. Park is surrounded by other famous attractions viz. National Library, Alexendrinsky Theatre, Comedy Theatre and Anachkov Palace. Its also walking distance from Anachkov Bridge from where you can get Boats for Fontanka and Neva Cruise. As you enter the Park, you will be greeted by Photographers and people in traditional dress for a Photograph under Cathjerine's statue. You will also find several Chess Lovers and local Oldies spending their leisure time here. We enjoyed feeding the Pigeons and clicking loads of picture. We were there in Aug 2014.

Great place not far away from the center of the city. Not much to do there, just to see a monument for Catherin the 2nd or waste some time before the performance in the Alexandrinsky theatre, which is facing the square
