Packed with cars, covered with ice on the sidewalks and mud on the street. Traffic jams expected, better avoid. Walking is simplky dangerous due to slippery ice

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.

Street Svetlanskaya is without a doubt - the core of Vladivostok, it is impossible to imagine this city without streets, this is the first street of the city since 1861, there is the whole story with her eloquent testimony. 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
