Busy and vibrant. Look beyond the front doors. I was amazed at the number of drab buildings on the outside but modern or Art Deco on the inside.

Busy stretch of street with lots of shops and places to eat. A mini central district with everything available just near each other!

Decorated for Christmas with lovely lights from one end to the other. With crowds of people and the snow falling, it was just wonderful

The most long street i have even been on. Takes hours from one end to the other but it's definetly the heart of St.Petersburg. Our hotel had a great entry and had 24/7 security. Great restaurants & bars & nightlife is at it's best.

So much to see and do! When you think you've done it all, go out at 2 in the morning and watch the opening of the bridge under a starry, moonlit sky.

Spent a lot of time walking the main street in St. Petersburg. Something for everyone. Cafes, Cathedrals, high end shopping, souvenirs and food from Burger King to K&E Food Hall. Appears safe into the evening as it is always busy. Early morning is barren. Worth the walk any time

Everything is close to this main street, or on it. Lovely to stroll and shop, especially when it's all decorated for the holidays

By day, you see 2 long rows of ornately designed heritage buildings that come to life at night. Beautifully lit and decorated for Christmas. Just walking along the road window shopping is magical enough.
