A lot of choices for general shopping in a much more interesting environment than just inside a modern mall (at least in good summer weather). Live outdoor music in the evenings, relaxed environment, and some (but not that many) reasonably well preserved old buildings. The speciality shopping is just so-so with its focus on "Russian" goods. Most of it is... More

We strolled this street at 7:30am which was probably too early to see any of the main attractions. We started from Sidalin park at the North end of the street and walked a few kilometers in a southerly direction. The only shops that were open were fast food outlets, and we had a quick breakfast at Burger King. Walking on... More

There are many shops, malls, street food, coffee shops, restaurants, hotels, music groups and artistic works along the street. It ends at the river with a large area which often has entertainment for the public. the street is lined with trees and kept clean.

Walked down here during our visit for the ice festival. During winter it is lined with many ice sculptures and lights that make it a fun and pretty street to stroll down. Since the ground is frozen you do have to watch your step since some places can be slippery. We came here every night during our four days in... More

A tourist trap...Nuff Said! But having said that, we wanted to try the famous Russian Bread. The prices were ok, as all the other shops had the same prices. So, not sure if it was a rip off.

I highly recommend to visit this street especially in the evening it is very nice there. Street musicians, no cars or scooters and so many small tasty restaurants or street offers you shouldn't miss. Especially the Russian specialties I really enjoyed. During my next trip I will come again, definitely.

You will find this street crowded by people as it is the landmark and tourist attraction point. You can find Russian shops where you can find stuff for gifts etc. Along the road there are ice sculptures decorated with colorful lights. There are food points you can amaze yourself while looking around. There is an underpass for pedestrian where you... More

You would think that this is party street. There are tons of street vendors offering from the normal to the exotic. Lots of day time shops to visit and buy souvenirs, with many coffee shops where you can people watch. Sexism is alive on these streets, witnessing many lesbian couples walking around, as well fashionable types walking around. I would... More

This street is so unique in China, it was delightful. The store names in both Russian and Chinese was great, and the Russian influence over the architecture and the contents of shops was so unique. The placards on various buildings explaining their history was the best part for me. All in all, a really lovely walk through a part of... More
