We were staying nearby so traversed some part of this strip each day. Bustling nearly all the time, a lot to catch the eye. Plenty of retail choice, make sure drop into the old Singer building, now a bookstore and cafe. Lots of eating options, a few churches and several shopping arcades/centres. Touts for tours, grumpy old women and gypsies... More

It's a very very beautiful place. Neat and clean all around actually motivates you to walk and keep walking :-) Amazingly planned and the views are spectacular. Rich in history that you can actually feel it from the surrounding and indeed the Architectural beauty is all over the place... Very helpful and friendly people. I am already planning for a... More

Probably one of the few main streets in St.Petersburg, this street is filled with tourists as well as locals (Def more tourists though). Shops and restaurants are all over the place, and it will be a good walking since the road is VERY long, you won't be bored. Only problem is.... Not so special compared to all other attractions in...

Interesting, but not so charming compared to other sites in Saint Petersburg. Some impressive old buildings. The Singer building is nice.

An amazing street filled with shops, and the people of SPB. A real way to get the feel of the city, its vitality and how the citizens shop. I was amazed at the quality of the stores and the number of them. The arcades are wonderful to stroll through. Elegant city and street.

4,5 km long it was originally known as the Great Prospective. In 1718 it was cut through thick forest. It is the hub of the city's social life since the 18th century.

There are many different kinds of shops located here, including any resturant opitions. I was surprised to see so many of the North American Food chains here like Subway. A bit of everything to see.

We spent the night at a hotel on the Nevsky. Great place to stay. A lot of shopping and food within walking distance, truly in the middle of everything at St Pete. We spent the night at the Corinthia, Starbucks was right outside our hotel, bakery across the street and plenty of restaurants to choose from in this area.

We enjoyed walking along this street as so many interesting stores to see. The only negative is that its a noisy street with lots of traffic.
