What's good about Nevsky Prospect is that there are so many places to wander to off the main drag. All the big sights are close by, but what is good is to go down the side streets & discover places yourself. On one corner is the Rock Pub, down in a cellar, rock music playing & on TV screen. Many... More

Pulsating, vibrating, the way a main street of a capital (cultural) should be. Here you can also experience the life of the main residents, but only before 9am and after 10pm, when the mass of tourist crowds are resting in their hotels. Fascinating and comparable with all major capitals of the world, worth to visit!

Wether it's early morning, day or night this boulevard never seems to sleep. From designer shops to tourist tat, it has it all. You will be offered leaflets and a canal cruise on your way, but ignore these and look at the many wonderful sights and architecture. Stop in a bar or a cheap vendor to rest up and take... More

There is not much to say about this street except that u have to pass it if you want to see all of the main attractions. It is always filled with people and there are a lot of shops, especially food and coffee places. If you like these things you can spend the whole day just on this street. Would... More

This is the heartbeat of Saint Petersburg. Wide avenues, skinny sidewalks. Perhaps it only seems that way since they are always full of interesting and diverse crowds. We could have just wandered around here all day every day, and still have considered it a wonderful vacation

If you want to window shop and browse this is the place to do it. The old Singer Building has an excellent bookshop and postcards; Yeliseev's is the high end deli and worth a look inside even if you don't want the café (vodka and caviar). Some high quality souvenirs are on sale, at prices that are not too painful.... More
