Sytny Market

Sytny Market in St. Petersburg, Russia

Founded in 1710, Sytny Market is St. Petersburg's oldest city market, although it was originally situated a little further south from its present location in what is now Alexandrovsky Park. It's a large market that spreads out across the surrounding streets from its central 19th century hall. The usual array of fresh produce, meat, fish, dairy and dry goods is on offer, as well as cheap clothing and household supplies. Prices vary considerably from trader to trader, as does quality.
