Traditions and Habits, Saint Petersburg: 75 reviews and 73 photos

  Ice Cream Carts, Nevsky Prospekt
by Canadienne

Ice cream is a favourite in both St. Petersburg and Moscow ~ stands can be found on almost every street, as well as in department stores and other less-expected locations.

From early in the morning (a meal replacement for some, perhaps) through evening, you'll see kids, business people, soldiers and any other "type" of person with an ice cream cone or treat in hand. Picking up this local custom is the perfect key to blending in to the Russian population. . . ;-)
