06 December 2019

The historic buildings of the main drag of St. Petersburg are called as one of the best-preserved in Russia.

Nevsky Prospect was included in the ranking of the most beautiful streets in the world made by CNN Travel. The author of the publication notes the preservation of historic buildings and also pays special attention to the Church of our Savior on Spilled Blood and the Kazan Cathedral.

‘Planned by Peter the Great in the early 18th century, Nevsky Prospect is St Petersburg's main drag, running from the Admiralty with its unmissable gilded spire to Moscow Railway Station,’ said in the article.

In total, 21 streets were included in the list. The Philosopher's Walk in Kyoto, Lombard Street in San Francisco, Flask Walk in London, and Blue City in India are among them.
