How to spend New Year's holidays in St. Petersburg?

21 December 2020

 There are only 11 days left until the New Year.  A long January vacation awaits us.  Today we have prepared for you a small list of places where you can have fun and spend your free time on the upcoming holidays with interest.

How to spend New Year's holidays in St. Petersburg?

1. Visit the Christmas fair at Manezhnaya Square

On December 19, the traditional annual Christmas fair was opened at Manezhnaya Square.  It is being held in the Central District for the 15th time.  Here you can buy various gifts, Christmas tree decorations and souvenirs as well as taste New Year's treats, sweets and drinks.  The fair will be open to visitors until January 10, 2021.

2. Go ice skating

A large number of outdoor ice arenas have been opened in the city this year.  A skating rink by the sea in Sevkabel Port, a forest skating rink in Ohta Park or a skating rink on Elagin Island - go to each of them and choose which one you like most.  And for those who do not want to travel far, there are skating rinks in residential areas.  For example, you can skate in Udelny Park, Moscowsky or South Primorsky Victory Parks.  We add that you should not be upset and cancel the trip, if you do not have your own skates yet.  As a rule, there are rental points in the parks where you can take all the necessary protective equipment and skates of the right size.

3. Winter recreation centers

New Year's holidays are a great time for everything new.  For example, if you've never skied or snowboarded before, try the sport this January weekend.  And if you already know how to get down from the mountain peaks coolly and effectively, then you can go for a ride in Ohta Park, on the North Slope or in Tuutari Park, and then have a cup of aromatic coffee in one of the local cafes.

4. Public spaces

Every year new creative spaces for recreation appear in St. Petersburg.  So, this summer "Nikolsky Ryady" have been opened in the Admiralteisky district.  During the New Year holidays, a real New Year's fair will work here. There you can buy gifts and souvenirs for your family and friends.  In addition to walking through the shopping aisles of the market, you can enjoy a magical bird's eye view of the decorated city, ride the main city slide, taste aromatic winter drinks and warm up by the fire.  You can also spend time with interest in other public spaces.  "New Holland", "Sevkabel port" are waiting for all visitors and are already preparing something interesting for their guests.
