Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We walked along the Neva to New Holland. This is a newly created recreational space on an artificial island.
Old buildings were restored here, where various cafes were located, and recreation areas were also organized.
You can sit in sun loungers, lie down on the lawns.
I really liked the herb garden, where the paths are laid past a variety of blooming wild plants.
There is a large playground for children with a skeleton of a ship, on which you can climb and sit by the water.
In the premises of the round building "Bottle" you can have a bite to eat in the numerous cafes inside or take food and drinks to go.

We went to play with the kids but unfortunately the playground was closed. Also, they were renovating a lot around the square. For the rest it looked nice,there was ice skating but it was too cold.

New Holland Island is well worth a visit. We visited the markets that was going on in early January and also ate at one of the nice restaurants there.
A work in progress but already nice and even toilet buildings are made nice

After struggling a little to find our way in, we eventually found the footbridge leading to this island. It’s a really beautiful space - everything is very stylish, from the great cafes and shops, delightful herb garden, green space with plenty of chairs and beanbags to relax in, and a wooden ark that is an amazing kids play area. The sun was shining and we spent several hours relaxing in this wonderful oasis in busy St Petersburg.... certainly one of the favourite places we visited on this trip.

The buildings looked very similar to the ones in Amsterdam back in the 18th Century, thus the name of “New Holland” was given to this triangular island not far from the Neva River. Peter the Great used it as a naval port, but mostly for timber storage.

Eventually the Russian Navy took over the place. One of the larger buildings on the island, the Bottle House, was a former naval military prison. You can’t miss seeing it as the circular building is several stories high. Today, there are several restaurants that occupy the spaces.

Since 2010, New Holland Island has turned into a multi-use facility with popular restaurants, a school, a unique children’s playground and residential properties. Our tour guide from Peter’s Walk told us about New Holland being a place to visit. You can locate New Holland by going to Goggle Maps.

The playground has almost a life-size framework of Dutch galleon. It is supposed to be for children, but I think adults would fine it fun to go inside too. A large pond is nearby with “floating plastic lilies.” I think in winter it may be used for a skating rink.

We did visit New Holland Island one early morning on our last day in St. Petersburg. There were a number of security guards and we felt more than safe. I think we would patronize several of these unique restaurants in another visit.

There is a big timber ship as playground for the kids. Meanwhile parents can chill-out in public chairs around the garden.

Great park to escape to with kids, nice change of pace from sightseeing.

The park has a variety of chairs on the grass so you can sit back and relax whilst the kids play. If you can, take a blanket and lunch for a picnic lunch. Perfect on s sunny day.

There is an expensive but great cafe offering excellent coffee!

It is about a 25 minute walk from the Peter the Great monument. It is being wonderfully restored and there are a range of food outlets. We ate in a restaurant which served Georgian food. We looked at the food around us and it all looked great. We ordered off the ENglish translation menu and enjoyed the food immensely. The waitresses were really friedly and helped us in explaining the menu. Cannot recommend this restaurant enough. Apart from eating and chilling on the grass in the sun there is not much else to do. If you are in the area pop in for food, otherwise not much else to do. In a couple of years when the restoration is complete this could be a cracking place to visit. At the moment it is still in development.
