Gogol wrote about Nevsky Prospekt:

'There is nothing finer than Nevsky Prospekt, not in St Petersburg at any rate, for in St Petersburg it is everything.'

For most people, this still holds true.It is well worth taking a walk along the 2 mile long street. It runs from the Alexander Nevsky Monastery down to the Admiralty.

There are shops and hotels of varying standards from designer, expensive to those frequented by the everyday Russian citizen. I have to admit that I enjoyed visiting the shops and found them much more interesting than Oxford Street in London.

Even the architecture of the buildings as you walk along is impressive.

Address: Nevsky Prospekt, central St Petersburg
Directions: Metro:Gostiny Dvor/Nevsky Prospekt/Ploschad Vosstania
