The most beautiful city to walk around is St Petersburg. And this street is the best of the best. Beautiful architecture, culture, History and all the things expected. To add to its beauty is an even beautiful canal cutting it into half. You can go on boat tours on this canal. A walk across should not be missed at any... More

One of the most beautiful boulevards ever been to. Especially at night with the lights on the road and the buildings. Very recommended

Nevsky is the heart of St. Petersburg. You can find everything you want on Nevsky. It has history, art, architecture, culture etc. in one region. It is a long street to walk; so you should spend enough time to visit every place. Nevsky is also a good place for shopping and entertainment. In my opinion just walking around amazing buildings...

When I first arrived in St. Petersburg the taxi took me from the bus station to Nevsky. It was nite time and the lights of the buildings were spectacular. Nevsky must be walked from the Neva to the Galleria shopping mall. Both sides must be walked too. The side streets on both sides need to be explored as well. If... More

I saw the Nevsky Prospekt is St. Petersburg compared with Champs-Élysées in Paris, France. I'd saw that's a good comparison. Both are greatly important historical areas of old great cities that have been converted into awful places centred around shopping for experience crap. Yes, it's worth seeing on a tour with a guide that can offer historical perspective on the... More

The majority of the tourists sites, museums, and restaurants are on this street or branch off from it. If you are planning a hotel visit; I would suggest booking on or near this street. Walk to your tourist site rather than pay the 500 average ruble taxi fee.

I was expecting lots of different shops on this street. But everything seems to be the same. Lots of shops that sell the same souvenirs. I was looking for higher end Russian crafts and clothes. There was a "mall" on the street. It was an interesting building. It is not like your American mall. There were two levels, stairs only... More
