This is the main, busy bustling street, with lots of cafes, shops, deli, bars etc. A must visit and most major attractions are not too far from this base. Get a hotel near here if you want to be close to all the action.

We stayed in an apartment around the corner. Nevsky Prospeky is the hub of St Petersburg. Lot's to see and do from The Faberge Museum at one end to The Winter Palace at the other. You could spend a whole city break without leaving the street!

One of the great major streets in the world. The 5th Ave of St Petersburg. Language and alphabet are a challenge, but worth it. Lots to see and buy. And some of the prettiest shoppers:). Make sure to find the Hotel L'Europe for the Sunday jazz brunch. Fabulous!!

I was born and live in St. Petersburg. Nevsky Prospect for me always like a raging torrent. Many people, cafes and shops. Go to the wall of a building or stand on the waterfront. Stopping you feel the spirit of the city. Better not go on to the avenue if you do not like crowds. Select surrounding avenue streets.

A long and interesting boulevard that is best walked early in the morning. We visited February 2013 and it was great to get out while it was still dark. There is just so much to see, beautiful parks, churches, monuments, museums, and of course plenty of cafes for a hot chocolate with big picture windows to watch the world go... More

I caught the overnight train from Moscow, so we arrived at the main station on Nevsky Prospekt, traveled the length of it in a taxi - passing Cathrine's Monument, the Kazan Cathedral, a couple of bridges over canals, - over the Neva and to my hotel. A lovely welcome to 'Peter.' On my 2nd visit - from the airport, (and... More

When I arrive to SP I didn't realize I was stepping into a street with so many history. It's the main avenue of the city and looks awesome in the evenings. A good starter to experiment the SP nightlife

It is extraordinary to be able to walk on the steps of Dostoievski or Puskin. Nevski Prospekt is a beautiful boulevard, with beautiful sights: Stroganov Palace, Kazan cathedral, Elisseeff Emporium (a beautiful shopping mall in a very interesting palace), Bookhouse (which should be admired especially from the outside, as the building, in art nouveau style, is spectacular), the Anichkov Bridge...
