We stayed just off Nevsky Prospekt so travelled and crossed it many times. It is a main artery of St Petersburg and it would be hard to miss. Buzzing with tourists. Underpasses at major intersections.

You can walk down this street/ surrounding neighborhood at any time of the day, but early morning is the best. Great sights all the way, beautiful scenery.

This is the main drag in St. Petersburg and you can find almost any kind of shop or brand on this street. It is a busy place...all the time. There are malls of brand name stores...many hotels with a higher price due to location, and many of the tourist tour centers and restaurants. I find my favorite store is Stockman...an... More

It is a great walk but do tour as much of this street as possible. Many shops and restaurant's and bridges and historical buildings. At Stroganoff mansion, at the river, take a midnight cruise. During the summer it does not get dark in St Petersburg so this cruise was on a Friday night and you can see a lot and... More

We were taking a walking tour of St. Petersburg, walked from the Hermitage to Nevsky Prospekt, then walked along Nevsky toward our meeting place. Used a tourist map, counted bridges, and when we got close by bridge count discovered only the main bridges were on the map, had to hurry to make our start time. A wonderful walk, lots of... More

In fact, Nevsky prospect is most important street in St.-Peterburg - it not possible to miss it even if you are just for couple of days in the city! Street is something like 3.5 km long starting from Admiralty (approx. Dvortsovaya square) up to the Neva and Alexander Nevsky Lavra. In principal, you could easily spend a whole day for... More

This street is worth a walk from one end to the next. It's worth finding a guide of the historical buildings you will see along the way. The singer sewing machine building was my favourite.

It is one of the places that I spent a lot of time in. When I got nothing to do, or when everything else was closed as it get a bit late, I can always found an interesting place that open 24 hours to go into.

This well known avenue runs almost exactly East to West so as the sun only goes down very late and dawn breaks early, there never is a time of day when you can not take a sunlit photograph( or a flash lit one against shadow) of its amazing building facades, occasional bronze statues, or its variety of shop fronts with...
