Nevsky Prospect is St Petersburg's best-known street, cutting through historic center from the Admiralty to the Moscow Railway Station and then, after a slight turn, to the Alexander Nevsky Monastery. In the very first days of St Petersburg it was the beginning of a road to Novgorod, but was soon decorated with some fine buildings, squares and bridges. Nevsky is home to Saint Petersburg's major attractions, including Dom Knigi, Kazan Cathedral, Grand Hotel Europe, the National Library, Alexandriinsky Theater, and much more. Today, Nevsky is a prime place for shopping, entertainment and nightlife.
