There's much shopping but nothing you cant find in any large city. Also many tourist businesses. To compare to my hometown of NYC, in the 19th century Nevsky Prospect may have been like 5th Avenue shopping - but in 2015 NP seems more like the hustle of Broadway. Once is plenty.

Nevsky Prospect is one of the best streets that i ever walked in Europe. I would never believe that there is a street in Europe that keeps awaken till 2 am, alive and vibrant. The street is wide and clean. Restaurants are on both sides with outside seating in good weather and beautiful views, one of the best is sitting... More

The main shopping district and pedestrian area of St. Petersburg. When visiting, make sure you leave an hour or so to walk the street and experience the great city outside it famed museums and buildings. Wonderful cafes and people watching.

Because we were on a tour, we only had a short time to walk down this main shopping area. However, don't miss going into what appears to be a gourmet food store. I can't recall it's name but it is right on the corner of the Prospect and a walking area. We walked in and felt like we were in... More

I recommend getting a hotel close to this street. It's a great location, lots I restaurants and lots of tourist. Not the greatest shopping but you can find that on the cross streets

It's the typical high fashion, high cost street that is in every big city. All of the "best" American and European designers and high cost souvenir shops. Why this street even exists, with all of Putin's anti-west, rhetoric, is beyond me. There are some sites of historical significance, but other than those, avoid the rest.

You need to take a stroll over Nevsky Avenue as the city centre is not that huge and the best way to see it is by foot (and from the river).

One of the most beautiful city roads in the world. All the buildings are very impressive and no wonder Unesco has named the city center as Word Heritage. Very nice and lively at all times of day and night. Especially at night the lighting of the buildings is amazing.
