This is one of the bigger main streets ... even if you are in the mood for shopping or if you want to grab a snack ... this is the place to be. From Russian restaurants to intercultural cuisine as well as international and regional shops you will find the right spot for you.

Nevsky prospect have it all. There is history, present and perhaps the future. Near of this major street of St.Petersburg you can find monuments, churches, theatres, music halls, galleries, shopping centres, bars, pubs etc. There is normally quite much people, so you have to be careful as usual. There us also areas with cobblestones, which are kind of challenge at... More

This very big street has everything when it comes to shopping, from crappy souvenirs to Rolls Roys. It is always crowded and don't try to cross the road except when the light is green. People are driving like crazy.

This was a really interesting walk showing how some amazing palaces and homes have been converted to museums, shops and restaurants. There are no high rises. All the buildings are from 19th-early 20th century. Very few Chain shops

Visited in early November as the first snow was falling, actually a blizzard.All of November's snow in one night! Plenty of places to eat and lots of tourist shops as well as up-market stores. A lot of the main tourist attractions are located just off Prospekt so staying near here is also useful.

Lovely street to walk down and look at the shops.We had been warned about pickpockets. I did feel someone touch my handbag and his accomplice got between me and my husband. I never felt threatened and a dirty look made them disappear in a nearby doorway. It wasn't busy and if it had been more crowded I may not have... More

This is an interesting avenue with a lot of historic buildings. But it is also the hot spot of the city with fastfood eateries and a lot of traffic.

This is the main avenue in St. Petersburg which takes you onto other sights either way you choose. It is lined with restaurants, interesting shops and many souvenir shops, mainly cheap ones, but we found a couple with more refined merchandise. Looking for Pavlov shawls was not easy because the ones they sell the most are the ones that look... More

This is the main drag of Russia - or at least of modern western Russia. Featuring shops and palaces and anchored by the Hermitage and the Nevsky Lavra, it has something for everyone.
