Discover New Holland district Russia

> Walking along the Moika quay westbound from Dvortsovaya (Palace) Square, you will pass by Yusupov Palace, which houses a fabulous Italian-style theatre. Further along, past Potseluev (Kissing) Bridge, is the New Holland district, a large part of which is covered by a red brick warehouse surrounded by canals. Heading south, the Kryukov Canal leads to Theatre Square, home of the famous Mariinsky Theatre (formerly the Kirov Theatre). Further along still is the Saint Nicholas Naval Cathedral, an elegant blue and white building topped with five gilded domes. Inside you will find a magnificent iconostas carved in wood.
