Nevsky Prospekt

 

 

Perhaps the most famous street in Russia, Nevsky Prospekt in Saint Petersburg was designed by French architect Alexandre Jean Baptiste LeBlond who worked with Peter the Great to create the large boulevard. The street is renowned for its former patrons such as Tchaikovsky, Nijinsky, Rimsky-Korsakov and Nikolai Gogol.
