The Nevsky Prospekt runs right through the centre of St Petersburg. You couldn't miss it if you tried. You wouldn't want to miss it as a walk down the Nevsky Prospekt towards the Neva River provides you with an excellent look and feel of St Petersburg. You'll learn at least as much about St Peterburg from strolling down the Nevsky... More

This is quintessential St. Petersburg! Stroll, enjoy the shops, people-watch, discover great places to eat, drink, or stay. Great architecture, hints of the maritime city.

This is my favourite Avenue in Spb. It's lined with cafes and restaurants. The locals usually walk down this place to rub shoulders with the foreigners, so don't be surprised if someone walks up to you and starts talking in English. Only downside, be careful of pickpockets

We were lucky enough to be staying on Nevsky Prospekt and thus spent a lot of time walking up and down. This seems to be the main road in St Petersburg and the shops seem to be busy with locals. The architecture is well worth seeing and it is a good idea to enter a few shops - the ones... More

The shopping mall along Nevsky Prospekt is a one stop shopping place. The building is huge and you can find everything there, from clothing, jewelry, caviar and vodka. Fixed price makes shopping easier.

Nevskiy Prospekt is probably the heart of Saint Petersburg, you can find everything you need around here. Most people understand English. Restaurants, shops, off licences everywhere in daytime. Most of the bars are located around Nevskiy Prospekt.
