“Small park off Neksky”

Ploschad Ostrovskogo
Reviewed 28 October 2017

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
