St. Petersburg's Main Street

The grand boulevard Nevksy Prospekt is St. Petersburg’s main thoroughfare, intended by Peter the Great to be the beginning of a road linking the city to Moscow and Novgorod. It is still St. Petersburg’s principal shopping and entertainment district. Many of the city’s most famous sites are located here: the Kazan Cathedral, the Russian National Library, and Bolshoy Gostiny Dvor, an 18th-century shopping arcade. The street appears in many Russian works of literature, most notably Gogol’s short story “Nevsky Prospect.”
