It’s a quick walking tour thru the business area. Some interesting shops. Many tourist traps and street “performers” with birds doing tricks asking for your change. There’s an attractive fountain and cute story about cats. More important places to see unless you are trying to...More

Avoid the dark icy spots in Winter and you’ll have a great time walking along the busiest street. Lots of High street shops interspersed with museums, churches, monuments and cafes. The metro is very few hundred feet so if you are tired you can walk...More

But, if you are short of time, it can be skipped since you can see just as much from a car window. Frankly, I slept through the whole tour :)

True heart of the city. Great selection of various shops, caffes and restaurants. Can get very crowded, especially during off days and festivities.

where to leave luggage in St. Petersburg downtown (3 Replies)
My friend and I will arrive St. Petersburg at 7:00 AM and we have to wait until afternoon to check in the hostel. I would like to know if there is any train or metro station near Nevsky Prospekt since we will be hanging around there. Many Thanks !

> we have to wait until afternoon to check in the hostel Not sure about hostels but most hotels would gladly keep your stuff before your check-in or after check-out. > if there is any train or metro station near Nevsky Prospekt since we will be hanging around there If you are going to hang around all the 4.5 kilometers of it then why not Moskovsky station.

Getting to Helicopter access point near Orbial Road (4 Replies)
We will stay at Nevsky Prospekt, can anyone suggest the transport to get there? It is near Pulkovo Airport. The helicopter will start at around 9am or 10am, I am worry about the traffic during the hours. The company proposed transfer to & back but cost me USD100 I think it is too expensive. If I call Taxi (e.g.taxi777) will it charge by meter counter? Or should I get to metro Moskovskaya then take taxi? Around how long will it take me to get there? Thank you for your kind advices.

Hi SiuDing, I'm not sure what you mean by "Helicopter access point near Orbial road" - is it some sort of attraction? In general, Nevsky prospekt is not near the Pulkovo airport. It takes about 45 minutes by public transport (metro+bus) or about 30 minutes by taxi ONLY IF the traffic is fast. Also it depends what part of Nevsky prospekt you're staying in and if you're close to Blue metro line (direct to the airport) or you have to change metro lines. Official airport taxi is about 800-900...More

Canal Cruise in St Petersburg (4 Replies)
Those of you who have been on a canal tour of St Petersburg - which company would you recommend for a day time cruise and which route? We plan to combine the cruise with our exploration of the Nevsky Prospekt area so a starting point in that area would be good. There seem to be so many companies to choose from we'd welcome your advice. We don't need an English speaking guide but an audio guide might be good. Thanks in advance

There are plenty of boats; I prefer private - they are small and you can hire it for 2 or persons. More expensive but more fun and pleasure. I would recommend two trips - during daytime and at night when the bridges are raised.
