Information;

It is the only island in the city that is handmade. It has nothing to do with Holland (The Netherlands). It was a millitary thing, wood was dryed there and later it was transported by boats. It was transported to the harbour to make boats. The tsaar thought it was a place to beautiful for the army and wood so he made a house there in Dutch style to relax. Nobody knows if it ever was there. De tsaar was meeting people there who just travelled to The Netherlands. People where not allowed to come there, but know it's getting a renovation.
