Last Saturday the New Holland Island opened its gates to the citizens and visitors of Saint Petersburg. The history of this truly mysterious place dates back to the foundation of Saint Petersburg. New Holland had remained hidden from everyone's eyes for more than 300 years before it opened to the public for the first time in July 2011. Available only during the summer, the temporary project lasted until 2013 when the restoration began. Once the first renovation stage was finally over, the New Holland’s park zone welcomed first guests in August 2016, while from then onwards the island will remain accessible the whole year round even during the winter. If you did not have a chance to visit this industrial landmark last weekend, you can have a look at our photographic coverage.
