In St. Petersburg, there is always something new, original, able to surprise even the sophisticated traveler. One of such places, which has already earned the attention and love of our citizens, is "New Holland".
Island "New Holland" -a unique new Park-island in the heart of St. Petersburg. The main goal of the project is to turn the architectural monument into a comfortable place for citizens and guests of the city. The history of the island begins in the 18th century and its present name he received at the same time. Peter I was actively engaged in shipbuilding and invited Dutch masters to work at the shipyards, suggesting to create a new port on a foreign model. The Admiralty and Kryukov canals were equipped, on the territory of the island there were buildings for forest storage. Savva Chevakinsky, Jean-Baptiste-Michel Vallin-Delamot contributed to the development of architecture, and Johann Gerard finalized the projects and implemented most of them. Construction was carried out for many years, but the project was never implemented. In the 19th and 20th centuries on the island began to appear structures that are not related to shipbuilding. The most famous of them is the sea prison "Bottle" (project arch. A. Staubert).
The idea to use the island for cultural purposes appeared in 1977, its author, Benjamin Fabrycky. But the restoration began only in our century. Restoration was carried out by the company "New Holland development". In 2016, after the first stage of restoration, the Park was opened to the public.
