Svetlanskaya Street is the city's main street. It has many shops and restaurants. Unfortunately, it was dead when I walked down it because of the torrential rain. I can imagine, however, that it is packed with locals during the evenings and weekends with nice weather.

Other reviewers mentioned the traffic fumes but I usually live in London so didn't find the fumes too bad. It's an interesting street with a mixture of interesting old and some new buildings. Loads of banks and clothes shops. The main square then the Arseniev museum just past the square. GUM department store and loads of restaurants. There's a nice... More

The street provides a wide variety of different shops, and restaurants, which is located next to the harbour/sea front. Worth going to see.

You can get a lovely walk by Svetlanskaya st., just make sure to get ready to be disappointed by all the idiotic ads on beautiful historical buildings. I'd also recommend to wear a mask because the exhaust produced by cars here is particularly terrible.

I found that exploring sides streets and other parts ad the city was more interesting. I did have someone who has lived here for two years show me around, and he also likes shops from different parts of the city better.

Being the main downtown street, you can find most things that you want - the weekend farmers markets (when held) are very interesting, with great quality produce at excellent prices. A huge variety of shops cater to everyone, and its interesting just to walk along and see the people.

Though it does have a ГУМ department store similar to the Svetlanksya street in Moscow, it is very different but still has something about it which makes it worth a walk along. Lots of shops and if you walk along it for a while you'll come across a few statues/monuments as well as some impressive buildings.
