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.
