For us it is the most important street in Saint Petersburg. We even saw a huge parade celebrating the victory of the local ice hockey team in the regional finals. What a show. Full of important shops , restaurants and metro stations and many tourist attractions, including cathedrals and bridgets. We walked it several times.

This is a very large and very crowded main boulevard in St Petersburg and is lined with magnificent historic buildings, statues, parks, shops and restaurants. Reminds one of Paris.

One can't afford to miss this vibrant street stretching from Neva River bank up to railway station. It has numerous bridges, shops, restaurants, night life, departmental stores, money changers hotels etc . It is main lifeline of St Petersburg. One should try to stay in hotel on this main road for easy access to everything.

Some compare it to Champs-Élysées in Paris. Its a nice street, beautiful, full of shops (NOT for shopping), not very long so you can walk from one end to the other in 30 minutes. It has a lot of sight seeing spots and restaurants.

You cannot visit St Petersburg without walking down this big street and it is easy to access from the Faberge Museum . You could spend hours walking and people watching.
