"Sheer size" Nevsky Avenue Tip by filip007

Nevsky Avenue, Saint Petersburg: 9 reviews and 11 photos

  Gostiny dvor
by filip007

You can find almost anything in Gostiny dvor and the building alone is alone worth a visit. A succession of several buildings and architects (among them Bartolomeo Rastrelli) worked on this place, with a facade totalling almost 1km...

One of the most amazing features is that when walking through the complex, you actually walk through (and not around) all the boutiques.

The arcades or the shop itself are also appreciable in case of bad weather (in case when walking either along Nevski prospect or Sadovaia street)

What to buy: All kinds of shops, from honey (with red caviar one of the meals russian enjoy the most today - I always wondered why bear is a national symbol :-) ) to clothes, children toys...

A classic department store in sum...

Open from 9 to 21 daily (yes, contrary to many european countries, there is no such thing as saturday or sunday closures - every day means really every day)

Address: Nevski pr. 35
Theme: Other

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
