We had a nice time walking up and down this street as it was close to our hotel, Belmond Grand Hotel Europe. Nice food places down this street. Almost all signs are in Russian but because of company logos, you can easily recognize the establishment -if you want American fast food -see my pics. It's fun to decipher the writing!... More

Beware there are organised gangs that want to rob you! This is a very dangerous city so be on your guard. On the approach to the Church of the Spilled Blood 2 guy crashed into the back of my wife and tried to snatch her shoulder bag. Luckily they fell over and my wife's bag strap was securely wrapped across... More

As I approached my hotel on foot, I was surrounded by four burly Chechens when I turned off Nevsky Prospekt into a side street. Under the pretext of crossing to what I now know to be O'Hooligans Irish bar, two blocked my path while the other two undid the fortunately very tricky buttons on the side pockets of my cargo...

About four miles length in total and one could trace the whole history of the city there. Many churches and beautiful buildings of three centuries, all stood aline with the restricted height and it gives the beauty and style. That rule was established by Peter the Great at the beginning and still is followed. There are plenty of restaurants, caffes,... More

I don’t like this place. Always a lot of people here – it’s uncomfortable. But there are a lot of bars, restaurants, clubs, shops and attractions. The city centre is both good and bad at the same time.

If Las Vegas' strip had to be transported to St. Petersburg, Nevsky Prospekt would be it. Bustling with some fine eateries, cafés and shops, this street is your one stop shop for everything. It is even studded with several places of interest for the enthusiastic sight seer. Definitely the city's most happening street.

The Nevsky is simply history on a plate. yes it's the main drag in St Petersburg, but also the best shopping street and also an icon in itself,. Walk where Dostoevsky walked and visit the Nevsky

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.
