We have seen so much on TV and films about Russia, the revolution and communism but seeing it for real is amazing. History, Architecture, Wealth, contrasting over years, decades, centuries with the bleakness of communism. The legacy of both visible and living on. Overall a fantastic experience.

In the two days my wife and I spent in Leningrad, we traversed this magnificent thoroughfare a couple of times in our Tour Bus, and on other occasions enjoyed stops of limited duration at various points throughout its length. Like Oxford St in London and 5th Avenue in NYC, the emphasis is very much on shopping, eating an entertainment. The... More

Plenty of people watching here. Sit on a sidewalk restaurant table and watch the world walk by as you enjoy some local fare washed down with some exotic beer or wine or amazing Vodka. My wife and I had 5 nights in this beautiful city in the middle of this year when the "White Nights" allow you to enjoy daylight... More

This is the main artery of St P where all the shops and tourist attractions are based. It's like walking through an open air museum - whether in the snow covered wintertime or heat in summer it's a lot of fun. It struck me how Europeanised St P is compared with the rest of Russia.

I like to walk there for hours to feel the atmosphere of Pushkin and Dostoyevski Petersburg. My favourite place is dvortsovaya square, near kazan cathedral. In total - Nevskiy is a histoirical place whole.

Bloodline and backbone, because most known attractions are not far from Nevsky Prospekt. In the end of the street, there is the stunningly beautiful Admiralty building. Also, by Nevsky Prospekt there is the Kazan cathedral and Lutheran German Church. Even though the street is very busy, if you step to any of the side streets, you can walk and take... More

Four and a half kilometers long promenade from the Admiralty to the Alexander Nevsky Cathedral. Just imagine that three hundred years ago there used to be deep forests and wild animals though they are still appear in human skin;)) You could trace all generations of architecture in the city from its birth age up to now just walking along that...

Wonderful sites, sounds and architecture to be found along the street shopping, food and drink to satisfy your taste. Walking tour of the city would be incomplete without some time here. This trip found the Nevesky quite busy, good to see people enjoying the sites of the area. Heard several say this area can be issue with crime, well welcome... More
