“The place for tourists”

Many shops and restaurants are located on this pedestrian only tourist street. You will find ice cream(marozhne) stands as well as kvas vendors.(the old fashioned way--out of a stainless steel vat)

“Nice Calm Walking Street”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 27, 2012

It is a clam walking street, not too crowded. Have branded items shops on either side. Cute statutes to take photos with. We can spend about 1-2 hours walking up and down. Nice place to see Russian people in their lifestyle.

The street is amazing. In my opinion, much better than Arbat in Moscow.

I'd like it better then Arbat street in Moscow. It is crowded but well ballanced from architect point of view

“A fantastic pedestrian street in the city where you never get bored!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 18, 2012

An old pedestrian street with merchant buildings, restaurants and cultural sites. The street is quite long and will take you at least one hour to get from one end to the other. The preferable starting point is Gorky Square (the upper point) as it is easier to walk down the slope. Must-see attractions of the street include the spectacular State Bank Building (1913) and the area around, the Puppet House, a University building and the adjoining street artists corner, the Post Office (closer to Gorky Square), and the Lykova Damba crossing.
