  • Always when you hear Peter, association with the Nevsky prospect. I took a walk there. Yes, even the very nicely. But a lot of beautiful places

  • It is probably correct to speak that way. Because, if you came to Peter, and even simple issues your way anyway, for one reason or another, crosses Nevsky. Because all of the attractions within walking distance from Nevsky and he somehow pulls to itself its own life, which does not end in a café in shopping malls or just souvenir shops.

  • Nevsky prospect-the main tourist, and not just a tourist, the artery of St. Petersburg. No visit to the city on the Neva is complete without a stroll on Nevsky. And a light Frost is not a minus fifteen degrees in February a hindrance!
