Nice street with lots of stores. The architecture is beautiful. Go inside the different shops and enjoy the different environment.

Crazy busy. Good shopping for anything and decent places to stay and eat. Some interesting historical buildings line the streets tat are worth having a look at.

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.

Packed with cars, covered with ice on the sidewalks and mud on the street. Traffic jams expected, better avoid. Walking is simplky dangerous due to slippery ice

I was pleasantly suprised by the street. I'm not sure why, but I was expecting something a little more communist in architecture, at the very least, a lot more drab. It's a great long street to walk down, even the bank buildings are pretty. Be sure to stop in at Presto for an amazing coffee!

I found Svelanskaya Street to be, together with others in the center, a little bit like a mini-Moscow. The buildings are nicer than in other parts of the Russian Far East, but that area is quite small. Nonetheless, it is nice to walk around, there are some shops, restaurants, and beautiful buildings around.

Thank Jac-and-Jek
