It's all here! Shopping, restaurants, cafe's, ornate palaces and history line the street and grace every corner. It is the pulse of the city that serves as the cultural capital of Russia. It is a spectacular place to be caught up in the cosmopolitan and...More

This is a main, very large thoroughfare through the city. You can reach the Hermitage Museum easily from this road. The street is lined with stores- there is a great store inside the Passage shopping area on this road that sells reasonably priced, authentic amber...More

Expected a little more as I had heard walking down the street was an experience in and of itself to give you a sense of Saint Petersburg. It was nothing special. While you probably will pass this street given its prime location - would not...More

Although we visited Nevsky during the World Cup and it was expected that the vibe would be amazing, I can assume it has very similar environment at all other times. It is full of restaurants of different types and for a wide range of budgets....More

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.
