This main road is not very nice, very wide and you can only cross it by using the subway and they close these at night-time. Many shops but prices are a rip off and the clothes are stuck in a time warp. No English signs and people are generally miserable in the street. Stick to places away from the main... More

This is one of the main tourist streets in St.Petersburg and very easy to get to by the metro system. The Kazan, Isaacs, and church on spilled blood are all located right off this street and so are a few palaces. Enjoy your time while walking this street and take in all this beautiful city has to offer!

Consistently beautiful as practically all of St Pete, with nice restaurants and shops. But nothing spectacular really

Nevskiy Prospekt is the main and busiest street in St Petersburg. Along the street there are many restaurants, cafes, souvenir shops and main metro stations. Many main attractions are also within walking distance including arts square, Russian museum, kazan cathedral and many others.

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
