Maritime Victory park on Krestovsky island12
Why locals love it
This is a romantic place outside the busy city (but actually not so far from the historic city center) to go biking, roller-skating or simply walk with a dog or a camera. My favourite spot in this park is a pond with swans, a local "swan lake".
Why you should visit it
It is a good way to relax like a local and feel the breeze from the Gulf of Finland. Family with kids can go to the mini zoo and for a company of friends I suggest to visit an amusement park located nearby. There is a good restaurant "Russian Fishing" where you can catch a fish and then eat it grilled.
Search for a small Japanese stone lantern on the shore of a pond. It is a gift to St Petersburg by Osaka city.
