    Uninspiring

    I think after being so wow'd by everything, Nevsky Prospekt was a bit of a let down. I'm not sure what I was expecting, but it really is like any other big city thorough fare.

    The Nevskiy Prospekt is 4.5 km long [3 miles]. In my view the best most interesting part is from the river Neva to ploshchad Vosstaniya [ uprising square] at Moskovsky station.

    Unfortunately I did not have so much time to do sightseeing, but a walk around the center around Newskij Prospekt was worth every step.

    Annichkov Most (bridge) is yet another well-known symbol of Peterburg. It is named so in honor of a general of the same name, whose house was located nearby.

    Nevsky Prospekt

    by Sharrie Updated Dec 29, 2003

    I've yet found out the name of this building.
    All I know is it's very close to the Monument to Catherine the Great & the theater where they have the folklore shows.

    Anyone?

    This shopping complex, Gostiny Dvor Department Store, is huge. It has hundreds of little shops. Tourist shops, clothes, rugs, etc. Generally overpriced but worth a wander around.

    Nevsky Prospekt (Av.)
    It's like Champs Elisee in Paris, the main artery of the city, with numerous shops, restaurants, hotels and some museums.
