Nevsky Prospect/Gostiny Dvor
This part of the historical center of the city is known as the Golden Triangle. In Tsarist times, the majority of nobility lived in this area in palaces most of which still exist today. Nevsky Prospect, the main thoroughfare of St. Petersburg is a short walking distance. The Neva Embankment with its spectacular views of the city islands is also not far. If you have the opportunity, stroll along the embankment or along any of St. Petersburg´s famous rivers and canals such as Moika, Canal Griboyedova, Fontanka to experience the full beauty of the city. Other sites nearby are the Palace Square, the Hermitage Museum, the Russian Museum, the Field of Mars, Summer Gardens, Savior on the Blood Cathedral, Kazansky Cathedral, Dom Knigy (the House of Books located in a magnificent building). There are also many interesting shops including Gostiny Dvor and Passage along Nevsky Prospect as well as good restaurants and nightlife. If you are in the city during the white nights season, between mid May and mid August, don´t miss a chance to stroll along the embankment and watch the many bridges across the Neva rise. It is really a spectacular site that you will never forget.
