Basically there is no chance that you won't walk the Nevsky Prospect if you visit St. Petersburg. If you do, you've done so on purpose! Anyway, this is St. Petersburg's equivalent of the Champs Elysees or Picadilly and there are plenty of shops, cafes, restaurants and important landmarks either on the prospect itself (Kazan Cathedral for example) or within a...

I gave only four points because the lack of green areas along the boulevard.Otherwise it is one of the main places for visiting the old and the new well combined together.Of its about 4 km. you will visit actually only the part that stretches out till the Fontanka river.A big part of the city's highlights are on or aside this...

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.
