This area, which covers the stretch of Nevsky Prospekt running from the Fontanka River east to Ploshchad Vosstaniya and Moscow Railway Station, plus the side streets two blocks either side of Nevsky, is one of St. Petersburg's most bustling (and least peaceful) neighborhoods. While the area does not boast any major visitor attractions, for the fit and able it's still a good base for exploring the city on foot, while transport links both by metro and by bus are excellent.

The area also offers a very wide veriety of shopping and dining. For the latter, Ulitsa Rubinshteina and Ulitsa Zhukovkogo in particular have flourished in recent years, with a huge number and diversity of fashionable restaurants and bars. There is also a great choice of accommodation, and as rule prices are a quarter to a third cheaper than for the equivalent quality the opposite side of the Fontanka.
