I was pleasantly suprised by the street. I'm not sure why, but I was expecting something a little more communist in architecture, at the very least, a lot more drab. It's a great long street to walk down, even the bank buildings are pretty. Be sure to stop in at Presto for an amazing coffee!

I found Svelanskaya Street to be, together with others in the center, a little bit like a mini-Moscow. The buildings are nicer than in other parts of the Russian Far East, but that area is quite small. Nonetheless, it is nice to walk around, there are some shops, restaurants, and beautiful buildings around.

Not so much fun on this street. But it deserves attention because there are many historic buildings, shops and restaurants.

If you're looking for souvenirs, there are not a lot of places. Buy them where you see them. The area along the river on the weekend had souvenir stands set up. Check out prices and then bargain. Often a bargain if you buy two of the same thing.

This street struck me as an average street, worth wandering along. Some of the buildings are interesting but what is more interesting is exploring some of the hidden little alleyways along it.

Find at least 2 or 3 hours to walk on it, start numbers from west to south, or rather from the... More

So, you are heading to Vlad? You have to walk (up and down) this street as it will produce a lot of Russian character from granpas and children playing chess in a park to Hare Krishna chanting their hymns and passerby's treating them as normal human beings. Very good restaurants up this street (about 2 blocks from the Central Square)... More

First time in this city and the traffic on this street is probably the most significant aspect about it. People walking everywhere and to be honest the buildings have seen better days although they are supposed to be restoring them. Some of the buildings have dates on them, usually round the turn of the old century and some buildings are... More
