Great for a shopper Nevsky prospekt was full of bustle equal to Oxford Street in London so not an attractive place unless one likes crowds and shopping.

Feel the night time. See around and try to understand all the history around you. Have a look over Neva river. Look at all those... More

This broad boulevard begins at Palace Square and runs southeast through the heart of the city, ending at the Alexander Nevsky Monastery. It is lined primarily with late 18th and 19th century buildings that once housed the grand merchants catering to the nobility... More

Nevsky Prospekt refers to a particular street in St Petersburg which is quite long, I think I must have walked at least 3 to 4 miles on each side... More

One of the longest streets in the world, to many, Nevsky Prospekt IS St Petersburg. From restaurants, to souvenir shops, to bars, to nightclubs, to historical sites, to both the metro and the central rail station, to hotels to beautiful bridges; everything you could want is here. It is as amazing an experience both by day and by night but... More
