Being the cultural capital of our country, St. Petersburg has many attractions and entertainment for every taste and budget. And, of course, there are many different options for spending your leisure time actively: there are sports grounds and events at the disposal of residents and guests of the city. So, the city has covered year-round ice skating rinks. One of the most famous ice rinks is the ice rink in the Ice Palace.
What is the Ice Palace?
The Ice Palace is a multifunctional sports and entertainment complex that began its work in 2000. It was built to host the Ice Hockey World Championship.
Today, the Ice Palace is considered the most modern sports and concert complex in St. Petersburg. Sports competitions are held here: figure skating, hockey, all kinds of wrestling, gymnastics, volleyball, basketball. Figure skating or hockey competitions are regularly held at the Ice Palace skating rink.
World stars perform on the stage of the palace, from eminent opera singers to circus shows. In addition, thisthe place is a venue for exhibitions and conferences, celebrating events in large companies.
Accommodating up to twelve thousand visitors, the Ice Palace has a unique feature: wherever the viewer is - in the amphitheater on the balcony or in the VIP box, he will clearly see everything that happens on the stage.
Shortly after the opening of the Ice Palace, an indoor skating rink began to operate not only for hockey players and figure skaters, but for everyone. The ice rink at the Ice Palace in St. Petersburg is open all year round.
It is noteworthy that it is, perhaps, the only skating rink where, when buying a ticket for an hour, a visitor can interrupt skating at any time, rest or have a snack in a cafe at the rink, and then skate the rest of the time, which is very convenient. There is also the possibility of a corporate visit to the ice rink.

There are good showers, a cafe where you can relax and have a snack. Skates of all sizes are rented: women's - from 27 to 42 size; men's - from 27 to 48 size.
There are a lot of both positive and negative reviews about the rink. Among the advantages, one can note excellent and even ice, the possibility of corporate skiing, good locker rooms, and regular pouring of new ice. Negative reviews usually indicate thatthat there are a lot of people on weekends, and during public skating hours skaters or hockey players can practice, which prevents amateurs from skating.
Despite the fact that the skating rink is open daily, it is better to check the opening hours by phone or on the official website. This is due to the fact that due to various circumstances, such as training figure skaters and hockey players, the schedule of the Ice Palace rink may change.
In addition, technical breaks in the operation of the rink are possible during the day, in addition to which ice is also filled. It lasts an average of twenty minutes, but may vary slightly depending on the operation of the ice machines.
Therefore, it is recommended to check the schedule of mass skating and pouring in advance by phone or on the website.
