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.

  • You can't go in St. Petersburg without walking even partially this way. It's a very wide road full of historic buildings, shops and restaurants. It's pleasant to walk about.

  • If you realy want to feel st. Petersburg life you must walk there a bit beside the places to see that major sites are on this street 
  • I like the future architect, love strolling through Nevsky, I always find its architecture a lot of interesting things. Nevsky extraordinarily beautiful! There are a lot of cafes, boutiques and other institutions. I will gladly walk to Nevsky prospect. Advise!
