Nevsky Prospekt, St. Petersburg

The Basics

A stroll down Nevsky Prospekt has become a quintessential St. Petersburg experience, and it would be hard to spend time in the city without encountering the boulevard at least a couple of times. Nearly every city sightseeing tour will include the street. For a closer look, opt for a walking food tour along the street, where you can sample typical Russian dishes like pierogi, borsch, and beef stroganoff, or a night tour to see the street beautifully illuminated.
