I visited St Petersburg in September 2013. I enjoy walking in cities in which I travel for both exercise and the pleasure of seeing the sights and sounds of the city!
Nevsky Prospekt refers to a particular street in St Petersburg which is quite long, I think I must have walked at least 3 to 4 miles on each side of the road and contains many of the cities best hotels as well as restaurants, clubs and shops.
It takes on a different atmosphere at night with many of the historical buildings being beautifully lit which I found very delightful.
Didn't really do any serious shopping here as the prices are no where to be considered competitive when one lives in the USA!
The Metro runs several stations along this street so one is able to always return by another means if you exhaust yourself walking!
The side streets are also worth a mention as there are many restaurants and shops and things to see up and down the streets feeding off the Nevsky Prospekt.
