"everything available at Gostiny Dvor" Department Stores Tip by Audrey118

Department Stores, Saint Petersburg: 19 reviews and 33 photos


You ride the metro and stop at Nevsky Pkt and you can get into the GD mall immediately.

Opens 9 am to 9 pm

What to buy: I found most of the souveniers here extremely well priced - better than the flea market, and they have very nice ones to cheap ones as well...caters for all markets. Only thing is it only accepts rubles. and it is horrible to change money here...there is a money changer at one end of the mall at the ground level, but before you can get there, there are lots of locals offering better rates...scary!!! This end is where there is lots of viedo game shop. And the other end has a small convenient store to stock up vodka, n i bought some chocolate coated preserved strawberries here. There is a pizza shop and also public toilets for 10 rubles.

Upstairs is more upscale - they have all the international lables for designer wear.
