Saint Petersburg's main artery, Nevsky Prospekt cuts through the city's historical center and provides easy access to a string of tourist attractions, including churches, museums, shops, and restaurants. Planned by Peter the Great as the beginning of a major road to Novgorod and named after Alexander Nevsky, a 13th-century national hero credited with victories over both Swedish and German invading armies, this thoroughfare offers you a chance to discover a blend of architectural styles. Start at the Empire-style naval headquarters in the north, and proceed southeast all the way to the avenue's conclusion at the Neoclassical cathedral and cemetery containing the ornate tombs of Dostoevsky and Tchaikovsky.

  • 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. 
  • The most heart-to-heart Street in St. Petersburg) street musicians cheer up, entertain. You can buy delicious coffee and walk from morning till evening. Beautiful, interesting, emotionally.

  • I have a lot of fun shops. I think I ride the Metro walk from near the Moscow station because it decreases the interesting shops and come close to the Hermitage, you get tired.
