It’s the Main Street and leads to various of the attractions so it is hard not to end up walking down here. There is the city centre bustle, some street entertainment, lovely architecture and as many shops as you could ever want to see.

Loved strolling this avenue. Like 5th Ave., or Park Ave., or Madison Ave. in NYC. Tons of lovely women, shoppers, shops, everything, crowded, crazy, and useful. Get what you need here, and get the mercantile pulse of St. Petersburg.
