Nevsky Prospekt, St. Petersburg's main street, features the city's most exciting bars, cafes, shops and restaurants to suit every taste and cater to all budgets. Nevsky Prospekt - or Nevsky Straight in Russian - spans from the gilded spire of the Admiralty to the Moskovsky Railway Station.
Planned by French Architect Alexandre Jean Baptiste LeBlond, this historical street was built in honour of Alexander Nevsky whose victories were celebrated by the Russian people in the 13th century after he defeated the invading German and Swedish armies.
Find the best of St. Petersburg along Nevsky Prospekt
Visitors to St. Petersburg can use their days to visit many of Nevsky Prospekt's star attractions, do a spot of shopping or just stroll down the 4.5-kilometre strip and enjoy the beautiful architecture of this vibrant European city.
For culture vultures, The Arts Square is a great place to start. From there, a natural choice will be the Russian Museum, which features art from throughout Russia's turbulent history - from the fall of the Soviet Union to the destruction of the Berlin wall in 1989.
Onward along Nevsky Prospekt, guests can visit the bronze statue of Catherine the Great, the Alexander Nevsky Monastery or Kazan Cathedral, (inspired by the Basilica of St. Peter's in Rome) previously home to the Museum of the History of Religion and Atheism.
For a retreat in the sun, the Summer Garden and Palace of Peter I provides a perfect reprieve. Stretching over 12 hectares, the parks previously only admitted rich and powerful citizens for picnics and peaceful walks.
